The sands of time

A look in the mirror

Photo by from

Scattering like dust

I float in the breeze

I travel through your eyes

I’ll sip your memories

I’ll trickle, grain by grain

shatter your perceptions

and test your values

your relationships

your existence

I’ll fold, roll and mold

Beware! Here comes my roar

I traverse through places

I’ve seen kingdoms bow

and merchants throw gold

Once gone, I don’t flow back

my currents are not for show

I glisten in the sun

like a million diamonds, stunned

I’m a visionary’s dream

a sorcerer’s crystal ball

a magician’s illusion

catch me, if you can

shoo me away, if you want

with your dream catcher

take a minute

and look in the mirror

and you’ll see

me passing by

real fast

too fast for your pace

catch a glimpse of me

do you see my reflection

touching, your very soul

I can be your worst nightmare

or your glorious dream

you choose

I’m a fountain of youth

if you take care of me

keep up with me

in this marathon

don’t sprint, don’t run

walk beside me

hand in hand

we shall be, one

I’ll whisper in your ears

all my dirty, little secrets

I’ll throw in some dirty laundry too

I’ll slip by your fingers, so fast

don’t lose me

I’m caged

in an hour glass

Who am I, you ask

Behold! For I’m

The sands of time
