Time After Time


For when the world slept I was awake

Awake to  call of the future

For threads of failure were strewn around

Had to change the will of nature


For when the world laughed, I cried

Cried for a better life

For the path of the troubled was in front of me

Had to change it to happiness from strife

For when the world enjoyed, I toiled

Toiled for success for others

For the very reason of existence was his glee

Had to sacrifice  till it smothers

For now when I ask for time

The world is ahead and he aint there

For what was there yesterday aint today

Maybe I need to search him elsewhere ?
