Man alone measures Time…And because of this, Man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of Time running out. – Mitch Albom
From dust to dust
And ashes to ashes
the saying goes
As Death and Night escort a cessation
So Life and Light replace the end
With something new.
The stars shine forth in earnest amid decay,
To show that all need not be lost
For what is truly Loved and Guarded
Cannot be swallowed by Time’s keen hourglass.
Endings come as they must,
The necessary Evil in an endless odyssey
of fulfilling ones Destiny.
To fear the end is to ignore
The chance to start again.
From second to second
Hour to hour
Day to day
Year to year
Generation to generation,
The first must end
For progress to begin.
