Sleepless in the sands of time

I woke up one night with a line from the intro to Days of Our Lives going through my head. For the record, I do not watch Days of our Lives.

While trying to get back to sleep my mind kept twisting the words back on themselves in a ridiculous attempt to come up with ‘deeper’ meaning from the same words in different order…

I have a friend with schizophrenia who loves little word plays like this – he will appreciate it, if no one else.
Here it is. There’s one word missing and another word split, but otherwise they are all there.

As sands through an hour glass, so are the days of our lives. Soapie.
As glass is of sand, so our lives are through the days, hours. PH

I hope you are suitably impressed… Perhaps someone could comment with a contribution of their own using this saying or another.
