Time and Place

This is the time I’ve been waiting for too long

This is the corner where I’ll sit and sing my song

This is the music that keeps me on my feet

This is the border, this is a place we used to meet

This is the avenue of a life devoid of any fear

This is a boardwalk between memory and cheer

This is the Instagram of a face that once smiled

This is the hope, this is the way, this is the child

These are the dying embers of the autumn of my life

These are my children, my cat and cherished wife

This is the loneliness that comes from too much pain

This is the heartache when there’s nothing left to gain

This is the moment this is the vision and this is the sky

This is the battlefield where my dreams all live and die

This is the day, the minute, the second and the end

This is the place where I’ll say farewell my friend

These are my words, my thoughts and last prayers

These are the memories I’ll leave upon your stairs
