Get Rid Of The Advertisements

East of Midnight
 

 
In a day and seconds pass
the tick of a moment doesn't last
a blink of an eye has changed lives
some have lost, other's survive

to take a second and make it true
that one tick could change you
be it a wink, be it a smile
be it an inch, be it a mile

In a hour and minutes end
sixty of those seconds blend
the clock strikes the hours up
some have sipped, others gulp




to take a minute and make it count
that one hour could erase a doubt
be it a kind word, be it nice remark
be it a brightness to lighten the dark

And when another day is gone
watching a clock on the proverbial wall
can we say we mattered after all
be it, that we fell down, be it, we walked tall

to take a day and live before we die
know that ordinary things make up a life
be it a wrong doing, we can make right
when we are staring at east of midnight

Cuz before you know it, years are spent
and the cost was giving up the present.
