Only Time

Michael found my wallet.  I'm truly thankful.  But I feel so inept.  So sluggish and foggy.  I make to-do lists, then I stare at them in a daze, wondering what to do.  My mind no longer comprehends...life.

Time is always such an enemy, isn't it?  Whether there's not enough of it to accomplish our daily tasks or there's too much of it in the longing while waiting to see those we love, not many make friends with time.  I am caught between the intense longing for eternity and the joy and beauty in the here and now.  Each pulls me, beckons me.  Each much have my attention.

The grief is fierce.  Why wouldn't it be?  The love is fierce.  How could the grief be any less?  I do not believe that time will "heal" my grief.  There is no fix.  But I do think time will bring a new ebb and flow to my life as I learn how to live with this constant companion.

Lyrics:
Who can say where the road goes?
Where the day flows?
Only time
And who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose?
Only time
Who can say why your heart sighs
As your love flies?
Only time
And who can say why your heart cries
When your love lies?
Only time
Who can say when the roads meet
That love might be in your heart?
And who can say when the day sleeps
If the night keeps all your heart,
Night keeps all your heart?
Who can say if your love grows
As your heart chose?
Only time
And who can say where the road goes?
Where the day flows?
Only time
Who knows? Only time [2x]
