Through again and back around
The hours of the day
I travel in and out of lives
As time's left to decay
A smell a sight a touch a kiss
Awake or in a dream
All moments in the infinite time
Most of which is yet unseen
To live without constraints of years
Hours, minutes, and seconds
Couldn't be considered life at all
For the lack of progression is present
So we move along steadily
Never stopping to think
Our time slowly disappears
Like a drain in a sink
Beat by beat, breath by breath
Our days count down
Whether sleeping in a box
Or wearing a Kingšs crown
Each moment is priceless
Through the right set of eyes
Just step outside and look up
To consult the glorious skies
They will always be around
Gracing the below land
From the vast deep seas
To the war stricken sand
Reminding all life
In a calming way
That time will go on
So live for today

Through again and back around
The trials of the day
I travel in and out of hearts
As mind's left to decay
A death a fight a loss a scare
Awake or in a dream
All moments in the infinite time
Some of which is quite obscene
To live without constraints of tears
Smiles, laughter, and love
Couldn't be considered living at all
For the lack of
So we move along carefully
Never stopping to think
Our dreams slowly disappear
Like ice on a warming rink
Beat by beat, breath by breath
Our options count down
Whether sleeping in a bed
Or out on the ground
Each moment is precious
With the right kind of vision
Just step outside of yourself
And question your mission
They're always dream
In the minds of us all
From a fighter for peace
To a teen in the mall
Remind yourself daily
To accept what is done
And to go for the next day
Self united as one
