It Makes Me Think Of The Passing Of Time And That Comes Fast And Furious!

Author:

For Peggy Woods A Dear Friend

Time

Oh time, where are you?

What is this thing in life we experience?

It makes me stop and wonder

Is this real ?

From the moment we share it

It escapes us

How can we trust it?

When we can not hold it in our hands

It spans generation after generation

There is not one person in life it does not influence

People with a lot of time

Can enjoy each moment

The pleasure that has been created

Happiness in motion

We live in great anticipation of what may happen next

Ironically, people are all affected differently

For some people they have very little time

It is the end

It is a sadness we shall never forget

Then again we can't stop talking about it

All during our lives

Nobody can ever buy it

We can never give it away

It arrives in the light and in the darkness

It is like nothing I have ever known

Children want it to pass quickly

Adults want it to go by slow

Everyone has their own opinion on it

Time and time again

You are my fickled friend

I know you by name

But I never give you the credit you deserve

From now on

Time will always be spelled this way

With a capital T

For you have given me a chance to experience you

Through every emotion

Without it I would never exist

A brainchild of God

So important in every thing we do

May time bless you with the greatest love

That you too

Can say you have lived

Dim Flaxenwick I am so happy to see a wonderful friend. Much time has passed since the last time we talked. I keep searching for new ways to express old ideas. Wishing you good health and happiness. Thank you for reading and caring. The best thing about life is we all can do so much sharing. That makes life beautiful and just a bit different.

Jamie Lee Hamann, I am amazed by how fast time goes by when you're having a good time. Then when you are bored or working hard it seems to last so much longer. Thank you for reading and sharing my thoughts. Have a beautiful morning.

Michael-Milec As each day begins I try to accomplish the most I can. If I am able to help other people while I am on my journey then I know I am going in the right direction. I have to feel good about myself now and in the future. Thank you for your lovely comment. Have a wonderful Sunday.

You have my full heart support in this "May time bless you with the greatest love."

The worth of time has always reminded me of seriously function since early childhood. As if I had never had enough time for everything to accomplish, being constantly reminded of the memorable logo "For the time spent here, the prize is in that how much you have lived for well-being of the neighbor and to the glory of God. "

Time seems to mean more when you notice you have less then before. Great poem. Jamie

Every day, every time some good news floats into my email or I get some money I look up and say, thank you, Lord. That way I know life will go on and more good things will happen

John Hansen It is a wonderful treat to see you. Thank you for being the first to comment on Time. What an incredible line worth repeating "No, we only die once. We live every day." If only children could learn at a young age to make each moment worth cherishing. Have a beautiful day.

It is how we handle our time that is important, DreamOn. I saw a picture of Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Charlie Brown says, "Snoopy, we only live once." Snoopy replies, "No, we only die once. We live every day." Thanks for sharing.
