It really doesn’t pay
To take life for granted every day
Because it can all be taken away
In the blink of an eye.

Life seems to just drift along
Like a never ending song
Until someone dear to you is gone
In the blink of an eye.

Time heals all wounds, they say
The pain will lessen every day
When someone you love is taken away
In the blink of an eye.

As time passes, less often you will cry
The pain dulls to a heavy sigh
As the years fly by
In the blink of an eye.

Life goes on day by day
Until one day you wake up and say
“The years have flown away”
In the blink of an eye.

Mum, I don’t know how to say
I think about you every day
I can’t believe how the years have flown away
In the blink of an eye!
