So what is now when now is then?
There is time to start but who knows when?
The past has passed and the present is here
But now that’s gone the future is near.
If time is real then the clocks all lie
And life comes first before we die,
If we look back and try to see
What was that point in history
When all the stars were born in space?
And why we have a human race.
It’s called a race ‘cos it happened so fast
Some say it was caused in a big blast.
As the days slip slowly through our fingers
And the nights fall into the abyss,
My thoughts are drifting with the shadows
As I wonder what's the point in all this?’
If you want to know the future
Then maybe we should all start looking at the past.
‘Cos if it is nature that we learn from
Then our time will never last.
One day you will read this poem
Then you'll know the presents here,
Because each and every time you read it
You will see time can be our biggest fear.
There could be a solution to the problem
If you live life with love not hate,
But you better hurry as this time thing
Said he will not wait.
