Time will give the time I need
to enjoy life and feel complete
to supersede
with no defeat
I tap my feet as I proceed

Time will help me understand
why life did not follow my plan
I was not damned
It was a span
where some things slipped out of my hands

Time will ensure I succeed
my wishes will become concrete
all guaranteed
life will be sweet
every ambition will exceed

Time will make good luck expand
all “possible” transforms to “can”
fortune withstands
the dreams that ran
learn to receive so life is grand

Time will grow like planted seeds
lessons that pass will not repeat
finally freed
feeling upbeat
embracing life at lightning speed

Time will one day stop and stand
absorbing how it all began
a grain of sand
meets natures fan
letting today be where it land
