The Hourglass Flipped Over

Beating heart remember
fingertips to call to mind
a moment in our passing
flashing quick, to tick remind
The hourglass flipped over
forcing sand to backwards flow
making time, our choice refined
erasing as we go
Sun from midnight's passing
daylight breaks and clouds do sail
shadows moving softly now
upon this ghostly veil
Back still turns that ticking clock
reverse this serenade
a song forever on the heart
to part the fallen shade
Sing of us a moment
lullabies in cradled sleep
where fingertips remember
and our hearts together beat
