The Journey From Me to You

I can almost see the hands move
As the ticking builds like a wave
I wish I could just make it stop
But it is time that we can never save

Every new pain I feel inside
Makes me wonder if I’m close to the end
I wonder if my body is just giving out
Or is it a message God is trying to send?

It’s getting harder to be around people
I’d rather sleep than go for a walk
I want to spend time with my dreams
Because I like to think instead of talk

I wonder how flowers get their shape
They seem to know what to do
They know how they need to be
To begin the journey from me to you

I see the changes on your face
And in the way you live each day
You seem to be more accepting
Even though the pain never goes away

I don’t want to be a burden in your life
Or someone upon whom you cannot depend
I have to think beyond my own needs
And learn to be more of a friend

You can pray for guidance in a closet
But you can also decide what to do
There is no mystery to being a good person
I just need to stop blaming you

Each day a petal turns to the sky
There is nothing but beauty and love
What difference to a woman who smiles
If a man cannot understand what it is made of?
