The hourglass keeper
knows your time is short
when the sand in the bottom is deeper.

When the final grain falls
your life will be taken
by the hourglass keeper.

None can escape
the hourglass keeper
unless you are given a gift.

With your breath everlasting
and your heart beating always
the hourglass keeper forgets.

When the hourglass keeper
does finally forget
then end of the world will come.
