COUNTING DOWN



Counting down,

Counting away

The hours left

‘til the end of day

the kisses left

‘til the end of love

the lifetime left

of this push-and-shove

The sunsets left

‘til the end of light

the daytimes left

‘til there’s only night

the friendships left

‘til you’re all alone

possessions left

‘til it’s all been stol’n

The comfort left

‘til all is pain

the triumphs left

‘til it’s all in vain

the springtimes left

‘til it’s always fall

the pride left

‘til we’re forced to crawl

Forgiveness left

‘til there’s only hate

the purpose left

‘til all we are is bait

the fighting left

‘til we forget the score

the minutes left

‘til there is no more.
