The Fairest Man I Know

Liliana Kohann

​If there would be a man,
Who’d always be the same,
Yet different to all,
Can you guess his name?

        For some he’d walk fast,
                 For     some     he’d     walk    s l o w,
        For age he would run,
                 For      youth      he’d       c  r  a  w  l.

For lovers he’d be
Unimportant and small
For those facing the end
The BIGGEST MAN of all

        For some - a Mighty King
        Ruthless and cruel
        Yet for others a  servant
        Obeying THEIR rules

                 If you’d ever like to
                 Get him on your side
                 Don’t ask wise advisers
                          Ask    a     little    child

                                   Mr. Time  is  his  name
                                   The fairest man I know
                                   And  it’s  up  t o  YOU
                                   If  he’s fast  or   s l o w
