What is more amazing than your unchanging movement pace?
That has been the same from time immemorialleaving no trace
Tic tac you move towards an unknown place
Who dares to compete with you in a race?
Who wonders about the language you speak as youmove?
Or has the slightest glimpse of plans you weave?
You drift away leaving no foot prints for us to prove
So, how then can we now take a heave?
River of time, are you a friend or a foe?
For moments with you comes with pleasure as well as woe
You never look back, all you do is go
Irrespective of the condition, you are always on your toes
River of time, will you be my friend?
And whisper to me when am close to my end?
Revealing to me every malicious fiend?
That lurks at every hidden bend?
Through you I seek the gracious Lord’s face
For indeed you are a friend that maintains her pace
Hold my hand as I compete in this worldly race
And when am gone, make heaven my resting place.
