Time
by George Lashkhi (aka Heren Istarion)

You say it's time, you think it's time
To dig the gold from deepest mine
And nobody comitted crime
By wasting life and killing time
But what is time? Who knows! I don't
The river flowing, which ends not ?
And when you lack it, know - that's why
So many old an youngsters cry
For wasted years, minutes, days
But vain are cries and vain are prayers
For wasted time. But me and you
Are carried down by river too
To find what not, we can't pretell
To nurish lake in hidden dell?
Or join the waves of furhtest seas?
Who cares now, we are like bees
O'er mead and flower buzzin' NOW
They die by winter. Who knows how
In our turn we'll leave this world
With clutch of pain? Or with our Lord?
So let no trouble bother thee
We were meant for joy and glee
Go, catch this moment, labour now
while fools consider what and how.
