1968 Recalled

Life, in my hand
running through
empty as the sand

each grain new

To stop and wait
then realize
it's too late ~

life won't compromise

Each grain of sand
fast it went
was it content

or perhaps misspent?

Try to hold on fast
'cause each grain
that passes

was heaven sent.

Circa 1968

Words to the wise here-or would it be from the wise?

I'm leaving the cat a note
Quick call me a ferry boat-getting out of town!

Oh my you three, now where can I go to get humbled? Oh I know, I'll call on Christopher! He'll set me straight!

Seriously, thank you very much! You've made an old lady quite happy today!

Well now lady... as much as I'd like to, I can't rip this thing! It is too close to perfection... which is rare!  

And I want to add a comment to this:

...life won't compromise

Isn't this where we lose our innocence and become what is termed an "adult?" I think perhaps that may be the case. A hard realization... I still remember when it came to me.
