there comes the time
when your eyelids close
when the sun drops down
when the lights fade out

and you see no more, but darkness
as it clouds your mind, blocking out your thoughts

there comes the time
when all is quiet like the snow
when crickets are no more to chirp
when birds are no more to sing

and you hear no more, but silence
as it covers your ears, deafening your night

there comes the time
when you can take but not hold
when you can have but not keep
when you can touch but not feel

and you feel no more, but emptiness
as it takes over your sense, turning you numb

and come, come the time, it will come
as you must walk away
