    Ben Harper - Walk Away lyrics Oh no- here comes that sun again.  That means another day without you my friend. And it hurts me to look into the mirror at myself. And it hurts even more to have to be with somebody else. And it's so hard to do and so easy to say...

    Passing Of Time

    Passing of time,Fascinates me,How fast it's going,Soon be tomorrow,It's going so fast,if I could,I'd catch it in a net,From then on,I'd take my time!

    Time Flies Like An Arrow, Fruit Flies Like a Banana?

    I stepped into my sophomore year of high school ready to make a statement, leave my mark, make a couple of everlasting memories, add an unforgetable chapter to my life. A lot of things have happened, but nothing substantial, nothing amazing...and it's March, practicaly April, and...

    Slipping Away

    I never really noticed how fast it goes by.I am nowhere near where I thought I would be by now.Time is spent and gone. I am unable to retrieve it.I am here today and that is how I live.No more looking back; it only reminds me.Time is not on my side.

    Growing Older

    Life has felt differently lately. I am sensing the impermanence of it all. Nothing lasts forever, it’s the nature of life. We are born, we grow old, and we die. It’s the way of life.  I am watching my children grow and I am saddened. I wish I...

    Seasons Change and So Do I

    It seems like only yesterday that I was just a child wide-eyed with wonder. Then quickly came the chaotic and yet wondrous teen years. Twenties came and went along with my thirties...and come spring I will be 50. So many changes and challenges throughout the years, turning me...

    Let Time Pass, Just Not Without You.

    This second was now just seconds ago, and I will never get that second back. It is a sick thing to think about. One of those things I cannot understand, and if I try, the seconds will run out before I get to a conclusion. We shouldn't sit around wasting our time, because our time...

    Does the passing of time ever float around in
