Mother-o-pearl

Updated on May 7, 2012

Nobody seems to have time anymore
For anyone or anything that comes their way
They all seem to say that they spent all their time yesterday
And that now, they must move on their way...

Like a mother-o-pearl protecting her treasure
There's a lesson to learn about how time is measured
The pearl knows its beauty can wait for eternity
The mother protects it and waits ever patiently
As time passes each day
As time passes each day
Until one day when it moves on its way...

Give life a memory and learn from the gift you have grown
All memories are seeds that will blossom and all seeds can become a rose
Give time to destiny and learn how to follow the road
All destined are roads with their own course
And in course circle back to the road...

Give someone your hand and learn how give and let go
All hands need a hand to take hold and let go
Cause hanging on too long tarnishes the soul
Give time to yourself and learn not to give up on hope
Cause you are the spark and creations the heart
And in time you will always come home
Because no one is put here alone
Because no one is really alone
And you'll find time spent everyday
Time spent everyday...

Time spent waiting on salvation
Time spent waiting on annihilation
Time spent on aggravation
And time spent at home
Time spent trying to find realization
Time spent getting to your destination
Time spent in need of some patience
And time spent alone...

Because every day leads into another
And even the worst days lead into better ones
On the way...and you'll find time spent everyday
And each day is just time spent on the way...

Give someone your heart and learn from the gift you have grown
All hearts see the truth when they also are true
And the truth is all we need to know
Give life some time and have patience when changes come slow
All time really means when its given to us
Is we have more lessons to learn than we know
And more work to do so we can grow
Cause no one is really alone...

Be you mother or father or woman or child
Or brother or daughter or friend for a while
Time is a passing thing that we bring into play everyday
So you needn't get worried if life's in a hurry
Life's short...that is what makes the time spent count everyday\
And the insects and oceans and planets in motion
Know that time is a passing thing
They know that it can't be replaced
All the time that you take and the time you forsake
Is the time left in wait, and the time that you make
Is just time spent on the way...

Like a mother-o-pearl protecting her treasure
There's a lesson to learn about how time is measured
The pearl knows its beauty can wait for eternity
The mother protects it and waits ever patiently
As time passes each day...

As time passes each day...

Until one day when it moves on its way...

      You really do have great rhythm and beautiful delivery

      my favorite part is;

      Give someone your heart and learn from the gift you have grown

      All hearts see the truth when they also are true

      And the truth is all we need to know

      Give life some time and have patience when changes come slow

      All time really means when its given to us

      Is we have more lessons to learn than we know

      And more work to do so we can grow

      Cause noone is really alone...

      Glad I found you

      See you soon and thank you

      Phew!! Lucky I had just enough time to take in these lyrics. Life as a Pearldiver is quite hectic you know, trying to recover all the pearls that are hidden in prose,

      But really I'm here to complain - but not one those... Just wanted to tell ya the dope seed you gave me... turned into a rose!! Thanks for sharing your talent. Take Care.

      Extraordinary poetry by you!!! Your following words hit close to home...

      "Give someone your hand and learn how give and let go

      All hands need a hand to take hold and let go

      Cause hanging on too long tarnishes the soul"

      Thanx so much for your kind words and sincere praises, it is always nice to hear from a reader who truly enjoys your work. I will admit, that this is probably one of the best songs / poems I have ever written, possibly that I ever will. It was an inspired moment that I was lucky enough to be able to catch when it was there. But even though I knew that from the moment I wrote it, it is always a wonderful feeling and confirmation when someone reads it ( or anything you write ) for the first time, and has a reaction like you just described. That is what it means to be a real artist, I believe, trying to capture that moment and be able to communicate it, so that it translates into a moment for others, without explaining it or knowing why.

      Thanx again. Keep on Hubbing. Blake4d
