Constant

autumn

Just as I know the Sun will rise tomorrow,
Constant is your love for me.
Just as I know that you cannot buy time,
Constant is our friendship.

I planned for the future, looking ahead,
You call me back to the present.
Stop and smell the daisies, don’t rush,
Live today fully, tomorrow may be too late.

Just as I know night will turn to day,
Constant is your love for me.
Just as I know that you cannot turn back time,
Constant is our friendship.

Looking back in time, is to learn,
Of mistakes I’ve made in life.
Judging me not, you prompt me quietly,
Until I face the truth within me.

Just as I know that the Earth is round,
Constant is your love for me.
Just as I know that you cannot undo time,
Constant is our friendship.

I wish I could change the bad that happened to me,
To undo the wrongs, clear the slate.
But if I did, then I would not be who I am now,
Stronger and much wiser, I hope.
