The Passage Through Time

I have been wandering for thousands of years,

Looking for shelter and someone to appear.

I have been walking against the wind,

Trying hard to hope and endure.

I have been drifting through the dunes,

Blinded by the reflected bright light.

I have been tracking the sun,

Shining through the dark clouds and dust.

I have been waiting for thousands of years,

But no one has yet appeared.

I have been searching for inspiration to live,

Finding small measures of beauty and kindness.

I have been tired for thousands of years,

And as I watch the sun set into the ocean,

I imagine its morning warmth and glare.
