Time Will Tell
There once was a young man who walked along the sea
as he watched the waves roll up the beach
he would wonder what his life would hold,
who he would turn out to be.
“Only time will tell,” he knew
but still the man could not wait.
He wished for the day that he’d know all the answers
the day he would know his fate.
20 years later the man returned to the shore,
only this time with his wife
He thought back to the time he wondered what would happen in his life
But still the man wished forward.
He wished away the time.
15 years later the man again returned to the shore,
but this time with his kids
and they walked along the shore.
Eventually the man’s kids grew up and the man grew old
He took one last walk on the shore.
He wanted to be back before he knew the answers.
And as the sun set and the waves receded back into the sea
The man thought “I wish I knew what happens next.”
