Time stands crippled
Waves stops in their morning dance
Butterflies no longer wisp and prance

The singer pauses the song
Slowly, silently.
I end my journey
Time runs scarce
With hope still,
I steal a chance
Yet shadows evade me
Slowly, silently.

I wait alone in the dark
Time stands with will
Memories linger to nil
No more wings to fly
No more means to smile
The story suddenly ends
Slowly, I silently wave goodbye

Time pauses the season,
Midnight laughter ceases
No more rhyme nor reason
Love train freezes
In a vault I lock the door
No more.
Slowly, I silently walk away…
