Time's Other Side



Today we stand on Time's out-stretched hand...
But Time is subtle, sinking sand

While we make plans we would be wise
to look beyond what satisfies
this mortal tent in which we bide
until we reach time’s other side

The plans we ponder here below
are subjected to change, we know
But, One appointment waits astride
this passage to time’s other side

Without a doubt someday we’ll stand
before Love’s reaching nail-scarred hands,
Will we ignore this certain tide
that leads us to time’s other side?

Time’s other side of timeless deep
cups this wee gasp of moment-sweep,
Earnest, sincere we should prepare
while on this side of ‘over there’
