The Wings of Time

Wings of Time

The Wings of Time

  • What was that which just flew by
  • On wings of a whisper and a sigh ~
  • The form was vague, the hues o’er cast ~
  • In to the arms of eager past?
  • Now ’tis still, it’s ceased to flee,
  • And I am amazed at what I see.
  • Hard to perceive when viewed so near ~
  • Yesterday, last week, entire year.
  • Wait!  Not yet!  Do not depart!
  • Didn’t it just recently start?
  • How can it be?  It’s out of hand.
  • Nothing worked out like I had planned.
  • No mountain I see, nor great temple.
  • The year I built was plain and simple.
  • But I reflect with kinder view ~
  • The form its shape, the colors their hue.
  • At the time I just could not see
  • The value frustrations could be to me.
  • What God and I each had in mind
  • Often differed.  What did I find?
  • I touched a life and wiped a tear,
  • I held a child and calmed a fear.
  • A word of love was passed along,
  • A happy time was framed with song.
  • So now ’tis passed, as I’ve reflected,
  • Wasn’t so bad.  And I’ve erected
  • Amidst a world of ebb and flow
  • A loving, shimmering, fleeting rainbow.
