The Magic of Time

Author loves travel, books, music, photography, poetry, all of which are the inspiration for her compositions.

Time


Like the waters of the Grand Canal of Italy’s famed romantic city

Or of the rivers freely flowing out into the sea

The only way is forward, there’s no turning back

For time keeps running, there’s no stopping the clock


The winds of change may take you back

To the same page of the book where you once got stuck

But reading the same page will never change the story’s ending

Just as revisiting the past will not always awaken old romantic feelings


Surely we can look back to that once-upon-a-time moment

But doing so does not remove us from where we are at present

So while there’s always the idea of new beginnings and second chances

Something has changed, wisdom was gained

Time worked its magic, wounds have healed
