As I Watch

As I watch the hour glass
release the falling sand,
I feel as though I see your love,
Slipping through my hands.

As I watch the tide erase
the castles from the shore,
I feel as though I’m losing
the dream I know I’ve had before.

As I watch the butterfly
pass my open window,
I feel as though today’s the day
you will let me go.
