In which the clock of our lives ticks down


86,400 seconds
ticking down
every day

sometimes the tick is faint
but other times
we can hear the ticking
in synch with our hearts
seeming to get louder

getting closer to
the time when
the seconds run out
and we meet the grave
like an old friend
or perhaps an enemy

and all that will matter
when that time comes
when the clock stops ticking
and we’re left in silence
will be what we’ve done
for the good of the One
we meet

when time runs out
