There are days when time is king
 
And you are but a pawn
 
When birds refuse to sing
 
And suns refuse to dawn
 
 
 
There are days to deeply feel
 
The cadence of the rain
 
What patterns would reveal
 
Of constant joy and pain
 
 
 
Days that pierce the mind
 
With some enchanting clarity
 
Days that we shall find
 
Some beaming cosmic rarity
 
 
 
There are days which slowly burn
 
Like a patient, licking flame
 
And days in which you learn
 
Of that which has no name
 
 
 
There are days that love will reign
 
And haunt you with desire
 
Days to spend in silent plains
 
And let your thoughts transpire
 
 
 
Days that we personify wind
 
And gentle streams of laughter
 
And days when we but calmly send
 
A loving thought thereafter
 
 
 
There are days when breaks in voices
 
Seem like a glitch in the system
 
Days that deliver choices
 
Without a way to resist them
 
 
 
And days in which a mirror
 
Reflects a kindred mind
 
Where moments become clearer
 
When tethered fates aligned
 
 
 
Days when shadows dance
 
Like sparrows in the sky
 
Days that by some chance
 
Have simply gone awry
 
 
 
Days with brief gazes
 
Into a stranger’s eyes
 
With labyrinths of mazes
 
And chasms of surprise
 
 
 
And days without reasons
 
For the beauty they contain
 
That linger through the seasons
 
And in your heart remain
 
 
 
And then our days will dissipate
 
Like time was but a dream
 
And all that we anticipate
 
Is more than we now seem
