Time Is Receding

My time is receding,
slowly but still leaving.
I watch the afternoons,
growing shorter and shorter.
Their time is receding,
slowly but still leaving.
Their time will come again,
but mine will not.
So I came to say,
I love you with all my heart.
But fear not,
we will meet again,
for your time is receding,
slowly, but still leaving.
