Buses – R – Us

Consider this – no matter on which side you choose to wait.
The bus on time is not the one that’s coming – yours is late.

You learn to tell the time a lot, as hands tick, tick, away.
You’re very sure you’ll miss the schedule you have planned
That day.

Why is it that you watch the bus go by
While others get their ride?
Is it a cosmic joke on you? You’re not laughing inside.

The seasons change. The years do pass.
Of this we must agree.
The bus may come for you and yours,
But it will not stop for me.
