Father Time

Not at all can we escape
Our father time we try to chase
Won’t fast forward when we’re bored
Not slowing down when we’re getting old

Fear rises when mother earth trembles
Shaking knees give up and fumble
Only the brave-hearted will withstand
Wise enough to make a story grand

Memories spoor joy and scars
Bodies break down and even cars
When father time passes us by
Ready your heart to get by or say goodbye
