Time ©

Penned by Brad Osborne


Time is sleeping softly now,
As though it will never awaken;
And here, now, in this moment,
My heart is being taken.

This day will last forever,
Though I know that it’s only a day.
And soon, you will have left me,
Like a cloud floating away.

And yet, time is looking at us,
And this hour will never end.
But time is ever cruel-hearted,
And like a thief, is stealing my friend.

This second will last an eternity,
As seconds sometimes do;
And I can say that I have spent
Eternity with you.

One moment can last a lifetime,
And though we soon will part,
I vow that I will always love
This thief that stole my heart.
