Time Immortal


Time wanders on

Here and anon,

To and fro

What He brings next

One can never know.


Times wielder wanders forth,

True to his solitary path…

Unheeding or hindered by life's lament

Surrounded by mortal death sighs

Deaf to a women's despair

And the children's constant cries.


The wielder of time has no heart,

No sympathy

No advice to depart.


He is Shepard to the sheep,

It is as the Lion leading the lamb.

Cold comfort is his shield,

For time is His to wield…


Until, the earths cycles stop

Until, life's lament mourns its last

Until, the last sands drop.

Until then…


Time wanders on,

Here and anon,

To and fro

What He brings next

One can never know…
