A Blink of An Eye

Contributor: Jane Briganti

- -
Time passes by in the blink of an eye
People gather round discussing why
Pretending as if they don't know
Time passes by so that they can grow

What about life would they have to say
if life just stood still day after day
Mem'ries made with joys and pains
years of life with losses and gains

Life alone can give or take
causing many a heart to break
Time passes by and they grow wise
Living and creating emotional ties

Most of the time they don't know why
understanding comes before they die
Time passes by in the blink of an eye
and just like them I pretend I don't know why
