Against Time

by Bill Mckechnie
(Warick, United Kingdom)

There are times you feel like screaming
There are times you want to cry,
Your question never answered
Why loved one's have to die?

There is no more pain or sorrow
When their time comes to part,
For them a light to follow
But for you a broken heart.

There is no negotiation
But there is time to prepare,
There is no returning ticket
Once they do reach there.

There is no time like the present
If there’s words that must be spoken,
You will never have another chance
Once your heart has broken.

Before God sends His Angels
Like He does do every day,
Take the time to make your peace
Before they pass away.
