Sands Of Time

Sands, sands, sands of time

What stretch, what expanse

See prints, footprints

Some deep, some shallow, some faded


Graves, graves, graves of the dead

What number, what potentials

See names, names of persons

Some evergreen, some fading, most forgotten


Life, lives, lives of the living

All moving across the sands of time

Everyone progressing towards the grave

Each life may leave prints and or a memory


The good, the bad and the ugly

Jesus, Nero, Noah, Hitler

But the not-good, not-bad

We don’t even know who they were


To be good or bad the choice is yours

Eternity will judge the pay

But after this earthly journey

Would you leave a memory, a mark on the sands of time?
