Tick tock, tick tock, her eyes glance to see
the hands of time move closer, that time has come,
heavy footsteps upon the porch, pulses race
heart beating faster, a smile so bright,
he walks through the door. A sense of peace.
Closing the door, shut out the world,
leaving the gremlins of work behind.
They share a laugh, see beauty in all,
a small pink flower to fluffy
white clouds, ache so deep at what
Looking out across the ocean blue
A rainbow of color, prisms of light
to carry thoughts and dreams ,
and the power of reality sets in...
Tick tock, tick tock the dream of
turning back 20 years is lost........
