Perpetual Pendulum

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

The perpetual pendulum tells us the time and always reminds us to be kind.
It swings to the left, it swings to the right forever changing the day into the night. It lends us the colors of the rainbow when the sun shines bright and the stars dance happily in the darkness of midnight.

Perpetual pendulum please swing slow.
For time moves too quickly to grow this darn old.
Your hands move forward with perceptual precision.
Your gift of hope is our opportunity to gain better perspective.

Perpetual pendulum, it is time we’ve always wanted more of.
I’ll tell you true, and I’ll tell you sure,
If I can have more of anything, it'd be more of you.

I'd start my day with you then end my day with you.
The sound of your metronome soothes me to sleep.
It’s there to greet me every morning.
When I look up your hands remind me there’s always another chapter.
