The sands of time run continuously, things in life dont stop, contol is momentary, you cant stop the clock

People come people go, like the tides that drive the sea, drifting in drifting out, its how our life must be

One moment you're the inspired one, you share a connected thing, happiness is everywhere, you feel the warmth they bring

Fleeting, passing moments, a oasis in the sand, a few sips of water, in a baron lifeless land

One moment you're in sunshine, the next freezing in the snow, things get flipped so easily, its part of lifes great show

No matter how tight you hold on, through your fingers life will slip, you cannot stem the tide of time, no matter how you grip

Inspiration comes and goes, of this you can be sure, it softly slides away from you, like the tide against the shore

But like the tide it will turn, bringing new things to your shore, fresh waves of inspiration and I'm a poet again once more
