Lyrics of Time

My life's a blur the older I get.
It's harder to see the green grass.
I know it's right in front of me.
But I fear it won't last.
And time rolls on.

Reflections of my past
don't mirror my goals anymore.
Instead they make me feel stagnent.
And I want for more.
And time rolls on.

Have I fulfilled my desires yet,
or is there another road awaiting.
Confusion is wearing me down
as I find myself hesitating.
And time rolls on.

I don't want to be a has-been.
I want to be valued.
I remember when I felt confident,
and now I'm not so sure.
And time rolls on.

I'm warmer in the way I look
as my wrinkles grow fat?
But I'm colder in the winter now
as the fluids in my veins grow thin.
And time marches on.

My joints now ache with a desire
to be young again.
But more than that, I have the desire
to be content and not complain.
And time marches on.

My mind's alert but my body's not.
I'm slower than I used to be.
I should be grateful for what I've got.
but sometimes it's hard to see.
And time marches on.

My hour glass isn't empty yet.
I'm thankful for the time to think straight.
God, give me wisdom now,
because time won't wait.
and time keeps movin on and on and on.
