Sands of Time

The young boy wants to move ahead
To speed up time to when he’s older
Freedom away from both his parents
Nothing but his bag slung on his shoulder

To get on a plane far away
To travel far and wide
Seeing the mountain peaks and plains
Feel the ocean tide

The old man wants to go back
To re-do things in life
Fix all the mistakes made
Especially with his wife

Oh if only he knew
The things he does now
The bridges he would mend
As much as is allowed

Where in life do we get here
To yearn for future or past
To make the most of this life
For a legacy that lasts
