Poem: Time Silently Awaits

Time Silently Awaits

Time challenges my pace,

It abandons its infinite ride,

Intervening my breath,

I narrowly escape.


I am slower than I think,

Time silently awaits,

Bids good bye abruptly,

Days roll like film before I blink.


I swear it’s Monday when it’s Friday,

Time sneakily cheats,

Invisibly without feet,

I haven't had my say.


Love enters the realm of time,

Does nothing and just be,

Time slows down,

To honour the rhythm of heart beats.
