Countdown

By Bryan

I don’t like this countdown,
Already I see your tears,
I don’t like this countdown,
What it brings,
Opens our fears.

I close my eyes,
See those tears,
I see your smile,
As I wipe them away.
I don’t want this countdown,
Please make it disappear.

Knowing I will no longer able,
To see your smile,
Kiss your lips,
Hold you close.
I don’t want this countdown.

My move is certain,
The tears from us both will be real,
I know it will be a challenge,
As I must disappear,
Through the gates,
Take my flight.
I don’t want this countdown,
Hurts now,
As I think what it brings.

I don’t like this countdown,
Make it go away.
