There is a Time

There’s a time for pleasure and a time for pain

Embrace them both, then play again

There is a time to go and a time to stay

A time to work and a time to play

A time to be happy and a time to be sad

A time to be sane and a time to be mad

There’s a time to question and a time to believe

A time to let go and a time to retrieve

One thing’s for sure, it needn’t be more

More can be less and less can be more

There’s a time to give and a time to receive

To give is triumphant, you better believe

There’s a time to take in and a time to let out

A time to absorb and a time to shout out

A time to be stoic, a time to endure

Then freedom tastes sweeter, that is for sure 

There’s a time to love but no time for hate

If hate’s at the gate, you’ve arrived too late

There is a time to laugh and a time to cry

A time to live and a time to die

Time doesn’t stop, it rolls on forever

Yesterday’s gone, tomorrow’s not here 

So the time is NOW. Never forget her.
