the sands in the hourglass slowly fall

reminding me of my approaching fate

i beat myself up, smashing the wall

i'm close now to what i do not await


the painstaking silence only reminds

me of what my foolishness has lost me

the sunlight streams in and i close the blinds

no one can see in so my tears are free


i cry for him and everything i've lost

how could i have left so much time to waste?

i didn't recognize then what it cost

and now aloneness is all i can taste


the clock is ticking with my beating heart

they both will stop the second he departs

don't want to lose him.
