Time’s Arrow


You only have this one moment you cannot make it last
For time flies like an arrow it’s here then gone so fast
You can’t hold onto to time, it simply can’t be done
The more you try to halt it the faster it seems to run
Don’t waste your time dreaming of what you would like to do
Use your time wisely for this moment belongs to you
Live each and every moment relish each brand new day
Somewhere in your moments you’ll find love along the way

You only have this second this moment in which to be
Give your soul to the moment use your time constructively
This moment in time is fleeting don’t lose it in airy dreams
Never waste an instant in chasing foolish schemes
You have this precious second you’ll never have this again
Yield to the magic of the moment use it to light your flame
Don’t live your life muted don’t let time fade and die
Somewhere in your moments you’ll see that you can fly

You only have this instant you cannot stem times tide
The river of time runs by so fast and this you cannot hide
It hurries on so quickly never pausing in its flight
Days flow by so swiftly to give way to starry night
You have to make each second count live each single one
For before you really notice your time here will be done
So make each moment special do what you wish to do
Some when in your moments you’ll see time belongs to you
