As a second passes by
A molecule of a river is replaced.
As a day goes by
A number on a calendar changes.
As a season goes by
A different breeze goes through my sleeves.
As a year goes on
I change by an age.
I should have realized
You also change
By a second, a day, a season, a year.
They say time changes it all
But really it is the people living in it that change.
The time is not to blame.
Remember the days I was worrying
How time may challenge where our hearts shall bent
You were too confident to tell me
If there is a will there is a way.
You sounded too assured –
Yes, too secure.
The deep night sky spreads in front of me
But again, every second,
I’m seeing a different sky, another constellation.
Irresistibly, I simply stare.
A silent prayer wades through the night
Hoping to be a firm axis of rotation
That shall pin down on the earth with its graceful weight.
