In the sands of time the largest footprints seem small
And time strips all power of the most powerful of all
Babies are  learning from life before they learn how to crawl
And people are born to die and empires do fall
Eventually time becomes everyone's foe
In retrospect it does not seem long ago
Since i was a boy in a place  far away
But between now and then many a yesterday
You may be one of  those the masses celebrate
But like the food you do eat on you a use by date
On how long we live there is no guarantee
That goes for the billionaire and the celebrity and you and me
It does not seem that long since i was in my life's prime
But between now and then many Seasons  of time.
