A Thief of Time
A thief of time slips gently among the sleepers.
The old ones awaken, bewildered,
Asking “Where have my years gone?
Only yesterday, I was a young and sturdy man!”
“Only yesterday, I was a young and beautiful woman…”
They call, their voices ringing through space.
How can we catch the thief of time?
He slips invisible, unseen through the shadows of the night.
The thief of time, weighed down by all those stolen years,
Disappears into the stillness,
His mocking laughter echoing across the void.
