The Hourglass

Life is encased,

In a glass bevelled keeper,

Where sands that flow freely,

Are moments that matter,

And the memories we carry,

Are but crystalline grain,

Free falling slowly,

Like the patter of rain.

*

Life is unmeasured,

And its certainty vague,

Where time is oblivious,

Content to let fade,

And faced with oblivion,

A mere life time away,

We turn the glass over,

So we still have today.
