My bosom used to be his resting place

My belly his hideaway

 

Time flies

And with it blows away all that i was once to him

 

His babies have sucked my bosom flat

His seed has left my belly scarred

 

Time flies

And with it blows away all that i was once to him

 

My arms were all she used to hold onto

My muscled abs were where she laid her burdens at the end of the day

 

Time flies

And with it blows away all that i was once to her

 

Her burdens have weighed down my arms

Her good cooking has turned muscle to flab

 

Time flies

And with it blows away all that i was once to her

……………………………………………..

Time flies

And with it, the bodies we once reveled in.

 

The things time leaves behind:

The warmth of your smile

The courage of your heart

The trueness of your spirit

The power of your faith.

Time flies

And in its wake,

is everything i fell in love with.
