The Hourglass

Time is running out
with each grain of sand that falls from the top of the hourglass
I regret
regret the things I could have done
things I could have changed
people I could have saved
because with each grain of sand comes guilt
guilt about how I live my life
how I treat myself and the ones I love so deeply
how I walk around pretending
pretending that everything is fine
that nothing is bothering me
but deep inside I know that it's not true
but I must stay strong
I must stay strong for the people that need me
the ones I'd lie for
cry for
die for
the ones I love
and with each grain of sand that falls
I know that I'm too late
