Alvin Sneed Obituary

"As Time Marches"

As time creeps, it flies, it disappears,
It changes from seconds into years,
Consumes our life,
With each passing day,
And woe the soul
That’s in its way.

Time marches on, as if to war
Countless battles fought before
Why do we refuse to yield?
Lay down our helmet, sword, and shield
Is it so hard
For us to see
That time will claim
The victory?

Time overpowers the strongest of men,
And laughs at those who try in vain,
To conquer time, for they will die
Not knowing when, how, or why
Yes, we will die
While time endures
Time mourns no life
Not mine, and not yours.

Time humbles the strong, and exposes the weak,
It laughs at those who dare to speak,
As if they understand its goal,
Time will take its rightful place.
No money spent, no jewels or crowns
Time will never ever, slow down.
