Weighing the Balance




The ballad of time's live-laugh-love
Flows in the undertow
Through ether tent of seasons spent 
In living's high and low

Oh, I could sigh for days gone by
And wishes not come true
And I could weep for Yester’s keep
But what good would it do?

That begging bin beneath my skin
Though love pours out its gold
Is hollow still, against my will
And I am growing old

Inhale, exhale, a sacred grail
Filled with fresh vim and verve
Pours through love’s ache of give and take
Much more than I deserve

…though I could cry for days gone by
And dream’s futility
Life is too swift to miss the gift
Of what yet waits to be

  1. Don't cry for days gone by. Celebrate that we did it. Make every moment so.
