When the distances

Are measured by time

The realities begin

To warp your mind


When someone is always

Getting left behind

Every moment can seem

Like a race against time


When the stars are shining

So far up into the night

They always draw your gaze

Like a moth to a light


Another person is always

Taken from you by time

And so many empty places

They have left behind


When you are looking up

At the stars in the sky

You are really just gazing

Backwards through time


Our lives are in a circle

Spiral upwards to the sky

Rise up into the heavens

Toward the stars that shine
