Tic Toc

Tic Toc

Tic Toc

I sit here listening

To the clock

Time tics away

I will no longer live

Life the same way

Tic Toc

Tic Toc

Gone is the day

My heart beats to the rhythm

Of all that I have given

Tic Toc

Tic Toc

I breathe to the beat

Of another time

That was so sweet

Back when the babies

Suckled like they had a teet

A smile on my face

A calm came over me

As I listened to the clock

Tic Toc

Tic Toc

That was so long ago

It’s only me now

Don’t you know

Tic Toc

Tic Toc
