Weighs heavily on me like unwilling sleep."

On Mortality

     August 1980

 
Moment by moment
  A blur in the mind
Time slips away
  Where none shall find
 
 Come back!  Oh, days,
  Which long have past!
Hold to a moment,
  Which flees so fast!
 
That which was done
  Shall ever more be
A shadow that only
  The mind can see
 

   ------------------------------------------------

 

 Thought:

"My days are swifter than a weaver's shuttle,
     and are spent without hope.
 O remember that my life is wind:
     mine eye shall no more see good
"
              Job 7:6, 7 (KJV)
