Running Out Of Time

Contributed by jamesstockdale on Sunday, 3rd September 2017 @ 09:06:09 AM in AEST
Topic: oops

I have an intense fire in my soul
It alone can illuminate the dark
A passion in my heart
That sets me far apart
My only fear is accomplishing things I hold dear
Iím getting older
Time has grown forever bolder
Soaring high as a kite just living my life
Wondering how long will the grains of sand flow
Through the hourglass
No one seems to know
Iíve come too far
To be just another shooting star
Ready as ever for flight
Please God, donít let this star
Burn out tonight

Beautiful and touching. A sentiment we can all share. I join you in the same prayer for all of us.
Time does indeed grow forever bolder!
No one ever wished on their deathbed that they had spent more time at work, but for some of us, our work is our lifes love! I envy those folks!

wishing you well, always, that you/'/ll stick around.
you have maybe come far, but you still have a long long way to go, that/'/s what I say to you dear James.

you own a passionate soul - which is of the most valuable kind.
keep up the fight!!!

How very true..I pray the same words but also understand that we are not guaranteed tomorrow therefore we just have to try and make the most of every day that we are given. I have to agree with Muppet that you are a passionate soul and that those are the most precious and hard to find. Great job my friend.

yes yes as we get older our outlook changes
our passions grow deeper
as we watch the sand slip through the hour glass of life
do not worry
your star has plenty of burn left in it....

Wauw, this is amazing!
It almost made me share a tear.
I/'/ve been feeling quite lost somehow lately
and the time just rushing by is scary.

But yet again we have to let our
fire inside shine trough - as you wrote so beautifully!

I hope that whatever dreams and/or accomplishments you may have I hope you/'/ll make it.

//Whoa, yeah, that feeling of please never let this end. There`s always that chance, right?

Thanks again, TimmyJimmy.
