Twenty Four Hours

How long is this day of ours

Is it only from dawn to dusk

Is the day simply 24 hours

To be busy and fill you must

Do you have time for quiet reflection

To slow down, take time and pause

How long is this day of ours

Is it a road along which to drift 

Looking for something of adventure

The mundane from our lives to lift

Do we hide our fears in sleep at night

Or let our dreams take off in flight

How long is this day of hours

Is it really only 24 hours
