Time slips by, through the fingers of lifeThe gathering of children or husband or wifeAll small problems , like grains of sand , sifted and cast awayOnly those things of substance are left , to keep you from harms wayWe hide ourselves behind a shield of glass and wonder why it breaksWe throw our lives out , like the rolling of dice and wonder what it takesJoy clouded by sorrow , sorrow overlooked by joyEndless cycles of ups and downs as you trustingly fall for the ployLiving on a faith that hides behind dreams ,we climb mountains of realities trialsCrossing the sands of time without water, we purposely wander for milesStarved of lifes pleasures , held back from what may have beenNot realizing our protector was purging our souls from sinWe step out on a dare and lose on a gambleWe decline lifes temptations , than seek them in scandleHeaven and Hell continue the war from ancient times long agoThe Prince of the air and Lion of Judah struggle for your soulOne wants to keep it forever , one wants it soldOne has lived a holy life , one has grown coldThe weapon we have is written in words, forged on a tablet of stoneLike any weapon it is useless , untill it is learned and then knownNow the warriors of time come swiftly in dreams to tell me to hold on tightThey tell me they know us and watch us , hardly ever revealed to our sightExcept now and then , when the stars are aligned and The Ancient of Ages sees needHe sends down an angel to comfort my night and gives hope to an unfit seed
