Old Man Time

Old Man Time you have taken your toll
You have taken my future and made it my past

You have taken my moments of reality
and turned them to memories.......
seen only through faded glass.

You have stolen from me those closest to my heart,
and moved them beyond my arm's reach.....

Old Man Time you have taken your toll
You have robed me of laughter and left me with tears...

You have given me today and taken the years....

Old Man Time you have touched my life
and made me old...........
While teaching me that true beauty is in the soul.
