By The Time

By The Time

By: SeemsPoetic

 

By the time you read this...

I will have faded and frayed

Gone and decayed

Like pencil on paper

I've been erased



By the time that you read this

You may be afraid  Of what they may say

But don't be ashamed   By the time that you read this
I know you'll be grown

I know you'll be changed

Yet...

Deep down

I know you're the same

 By the time that you read this

I'll have hoped and have prayed...

That you became your own person

Not just a slave

 By the time that you read this

I hope you'll be proud...

Of the life that you’ve made

 Now that you're reading this

I'd just like to help you remember
I'd just like to help us and convey

We had a dream once
The world was something we'd change
But now it's just you
I've been away
Now... It's just you

By the time that you read this...

Ten years have gone by

Since I promised I'd stay
