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.
