I feel the sands are slipping now
Through my fingers tight

As the time flies by relentless r
Too fast
It blurs my mind

Perhaps not fast enough

Everything is changing now
The tides are rolling in
In their course relentless
In their tempest and their wind

And I, warm by the truce fire
Can feel the drums of war

As the sand slips through my fingers
Little by little, though tightly and true

My grasp stands ready
As the die rolls again
Weighted
But only lightly
And I can feel it changing again

I stand by my love
And the joy that I have seen
Ne’er spoke a word in error
Held my friends above the fray

And now they’re gently lowered
Now I can but pray them strong
As I raise the voice of comfort
To the place where I belong

Pause and pray in gladness
And sing the present dear

Hold the sand
Melt into glass
As the hours pour on

Discipline is remembering what you want.

It reminds me of so many of my poems. Leaving home is hard, harder than I thought.

In a way, I am glad of the difficulty.
