time, you are a thief

lives are brief

what you have given

you have taken

we come

we go

you control

on parole

prisoners in your clutch

taking us all to lunch

constructed, destroyed

no exceptions

temporary satisfactions

in your mercy

the future, I dare not see

my time will come

not just for some

for all

when you call

may my calling be timely

handle me lightly

scared not even slightly

what will you do when I’m gone

power over me you will have none

you will not see

I will not be

all things end

light you bend

time you are a thief

 the all time chief

time you are a thief
