Time

Where did the time go?

Was it not just yesterday

that I ran in fields every day

and every thought was of play?

 

Why must time flow so fast?

that all I envision

is sums and revision

and the accrual of funds my mission?

 

How is it I am out of time?

Why must my bones be succumbing

my muscles decaying

and my life’s essence fleeting?

 

Would I re-do my time if I could?

the time reset and a chance to renew

Nay, every breath I took was what grew

myself, and if I lost this could you still call me you?

  1. Wow it must be the time for great works to flow forth. I have just finished reading a post by Frank Solanski that I have reblogged, and then your piece quickly dropped into my inbox straight after.

    Guess what I am reblogging you too. I love the closing lines – ‘Nay, every breath I took was what grew
    myself, and if I lost this could you still call me you? – Brilliant ❤️
