TIME

Time,
You're such a great healer, I'm told.
Excuse me if I sound rather bold.
But why can't you be of some comfort to me?
All I can see are days and night of misery.

Time,
I've been waiting so long, just counting on you.
Don't you know what it's like to be blue?
I can't wait much longer, oh please, won't you hurry.
I can't go on living with this life full of worry.

Time,
Just when I think I am gaining some ground
My memories haunt me with each sight and sound.
A word that she used or her favorite flower
Will break me back down 'till alone here I cower.

Time,
She was my life and without her I'm numb
Sometimes I wish that the end would soon come
I'm tired of this aching and hurting inside
I want to find meaning to life and to pride.

Time,
She left me alone, so now I must find
Someone who'll be ever gentle and kind
And erase all my sorrow and painful mistakes
And show me that just love is all that it takes.
