The Clock Keeps On Ticking

The Clock Keeps On Ticking

 Your voice is silent tonight

Yet your essence

Still clings to me

I yearn to fill the emptiness

And time is drifting by

I have lost count of the hours

But the clock keeps on ticking

Memories engulf me

Like scarlet flowers

That never seem to fade

With the passing of years

They flow like silk

The music that you were

I hear it in the moon

As it dances on the lake

The song that you were

I roll it off my tongue

My memories like leaves

They rustle in the wind

And I am ever searching

To find a way

To let the days rewind

So I can fly with you

Just one more day

Above the ties that bind

Yet still my waiting heart

Hears that well familiar clock

Its endless ticking

Running through the years

Like the sands through the hourglass

And my ever-present tears
