As I watch so quickly pass
The time slips through my hands
One by one the days quicken
Like an hour glass flowing with sand.
Each grain trickles silently away
Each piece a moment in time
Not to be measured by anyone
Except by this heart of mine.
Savoring each moment with you
Before our time can no longer be
I will treasure each grain of sand
As the moments you've spent with me.
Although times together are far between
And for me the times are all so few
You are always within my heart
Filled with the sweetest thought of you.
Knowing you will again return to me
As I savor each memory of our time
And again to hold you close to me
And feel your heart next to mine.
