the insights of life that vision the apprehensions
the thorn that brings you in the depth of emotions

the voice within that commends you to slip away
like the setting sun that refuses to brighten my day

the flower blooms with fragrance and beauty
with budding hopes that give life a full bounty

so soon would wither with petals on the ground
crumpled to dust and no traces were ever found

like the sun that gloriously shines each morning
are the shades that bring darkness in my evening

’twas the borrowed moment treasured in my heart
knowing that someday you will leave and depart

everything we kept through the years will change
and the looks in each eye will soon be strange

and as the hands of the clock go round in a circle
when my hair turns gray and my knees will buckle

i will have you near as my thoughts shall forever linger
changes will keep changing but yet, i have you dearer
