Time passes perceptibly slow,
over moments you wish to forget.
While dreams you have to let go,

When love's no where to be found,

And smiles no longer abound,
as you almost go insane.

yet just one step leads the way.
And if fear's kept under guard,
your courage can't slip away.

Enjoy life with all your heart,
and let love transform your soul.
For now is the time to start,
before the tears take their toll.
