Such A Short Stay

Where is the time?
as the seconds tick by,
When a friend held your hand,
as the minutes move on,
When love meant forever,
as the hours drift past,
Was friendship confused?
as the days turn to nights,
Loves so easy to lose,
as the weeks become months,
The candles gone out,
as the years take there toll,
Where gone and forgotton,
as life ebbs away,
And where back to the dust,
such a short stay.
