There Comes A Time... 7-8-06


There comes a time in all men's lives,
-When he questions all he's done.
Should he continue on his course -
Or finally say, "Well done"?

There comes a time his children leave,
They seem to be so busy.
Should we wait for them to call?
Or call them? It makes us dizzy.

My wife and I became a pair,
So many years ago;
But things became so different as,
I watched her knit and sew....

Now faster time accelerates.
I buried half of me.
I sit alone in disbelief -
so lonely I will be.

And now my time will surely come,
It's sooner than I think.
There'll come a time in your life too,
Be watchful - do not blink.

I'm torn in two as tears begin
to wet my wrinkled face....
At least I know we'll be, one day,
together in one place....
