I waited for you my entire life
I watched you grow in front of my eyes..
I watched you grow grain by grain
I watched you grow minute by minute..
I watched your beauty through the hourglass
I feared holding you in my arms
I feared holding you in my embrace
For I feared you would slip away…
I tried my best not to touch you
I tried my best not to feel you
but my temptation got better of me
I held you in my arms, It was so beautiful
For a moment or two it felt like heaven
But I suddenly realized what I had done
You were not to be touched, For it was a sin
It was too late for the mistake to be undone
You started slipping out of my hands
I tried with all my might but all in vain..
All I could do was cry helplessly
As you slipped away grain by grain..
