Time slowly takes all away.
One by one, day by day,
I see who you once were
Fade into a muted gray.
Not all that dims is wrong to wane.
Not everything that dwindles was made to stay.
And you still build and recreate
Into a better version of what was once just okay.
And so as I watch these hours push you further
Into the tide I know will someday take you away
I hope you feel the love that surrounds you now;
I pray these sunrises will give us hope for the next day.
