Sands of Time

I walk along the sands of time

A vast, unending beach

I see above the stars of fate

Forever out of reach

The winds of change are blowing in

Together with the tide

Reminding me of times long passed

The waves of grief I've cried

Clouds of doom are gathering

The stars they interlope

Yet through the dark'ning sky I see

A shining ray of hope

I find a gift upon the beach

And listen to the shell

The echoes of the past within

Whisper that all is well

Upon the sands of time I walk

Against the winds of change

And words of grief, of past, and hope

The stars and sands exchange
