Wasted Time.

One million grains of sand,
Washed up one the shore
We could stay here forever,
And never count them all

Countless shining stars,
Up there in the sky
We will never find them all,
But still we hope to try

A field of sturdy oaks,
Dancing in the breeze
We could hide ourselves here,
Under a thousand leaves

But one day the grains of sand,
Will be swallowed by the sea
They’ll be carried far away,
And the beach will cease to be

The stars will hide themselves,
The night will be darker still
We’ll hope that they return,
But we know they never will

The trees will start to wither,
And the wind will cease to blow
And everyone will ask themselves:
“Why did we let it go?”
