Hourglass

These years, spinning slowly by
Receding like an hourglass
Hold on child, to your youth
Soon this innocence will pass
Gone are the eased days
Where time did not exist
Photos, frozen memories
Of the childhood we missed
Grab on while the world is endless
Hold fast to each day
Live as if you'd dream you could
Passion leads the way
The hourglass, it trickles by
Each grain a child's smile
Tomorrow, you'll be older yet
So stop and play awhile
Years will come and we'll grow
Becoming what we choose
But don't forget to seize the moment
This time's too pure to lose
