Time Has Passed Me By

What do you do when time surpasses you?

When you wake up and realize you will be 30 soon.

There are still things left to be done but the fear makes you want to run.

Things you wanted to acomplish,so much that you have missed.

What about all of those stars that you once upon wished?

All of your dreams seem miles away..
when you wake up one day,
and realize time has passed you by.

You wanted to do this before then,and that before now.

Those things you will do you vow,but just when and just how?

I bet it won’t be right now.

You wonder if your parents ever felt this way.

If they too just woke up one day.

And realized time had passed them by.

No one ever explained this part of life to you,you now have no clue what to do.

You try to decide if those dreams you do want to pursue.

Or keep living like your feet and the ground, they are glued.

Should you go wild, should you go crazy?

It’s all seeming so damned hazy.

The fog still won’t lift as i wake up and realize time has passed me by.

The daily grind is here

That much has become clear.

My kids i hold dear,afterall they trust me with their fears.

Should i tell them, will they hear?

When i looked into the mirror,my age became ever clearer.

Gone is the light from my eyes.

Gone is the spring in my step.

Gone is the body i took for granted.

Where do i start, what do i do?

I have things i want to get done.

I have things I want to do.

I have things i want to see
and I have places i want to go too.

Though i still don’t know how all of this happened……..

Time has just simply passed me by.
