Time Will Carry On

Will the clock wind down
As the year turns a corner?
Will the world lose innocence
Lose grace, lose honor?

Will history hit a precipice
As we close out the year?
Will winter bring a gnarly plot
As our eyes peek out in fear?

The world may look amiss
Empathy all torn apart
A void of feelings in the air
A total eclipse of the heart?

The sun will still come shining through
As we twirl around it once more
The new year will come ringing in
With joy, love and hope , all pure!

The clock’s not winding down, my friend,
Time will carry on,
For eons, and ages and ever more
Long after you and I are gone!
