That's The Alarm Get Up

Ha Ha The Jokes On You

I have been up for two and a half hours

You think you disturbed me

You startled me that's all

I was deep in a thought

You are always thinking?

Which thought wouldn't you like to know?

Well, if you are going to keep bugging me

I will tell you

It is how I am going to spend my day

Like you really care

All you do is keep time

Hey, wait a minute buddy

If it wasn't for me

You would be late all the time

No pun intended

I am the center of your world

You couldn't exist without me

I am so important people carry me around all day

Either on their wrist watch or on their cell phone

Why do you check on me so often?

Because I am accurate and on point

I am so accurate to the milliseconds

I am celebrated all over the world

I have my own day

New Years Eve is all about me

I control how long you wait at a traffic light

How long you cook food in the microwave

You watch my every minute

When it is ready to get dark

Your boss loves me more than you

On your time card

I decide how much you get paid and when

You guessed it

Without time you wouldn't know when the holidays were here

I started centuries before you came into the picture

Our first introduction was the day you were born

The doctor told the nurse the time of your arrival

Then to your last day on earth

I will be there

When the medical examiner

Gives the time of death

It looks like I owe you an apology

I never realized you are so important

Most people don't and take me for granted

No more

Apology excepted

You made me seem like I didn't want to get up Miss Time

That I couldn't hear you

That I didn't know your the sound of your alarm clock

I sure didn't mean it that way

I was joking with you

A little too early in the morning for ya

The truth is time can be lonely

I am here all day

Doing my thing

Perfection all day long

Working every day

Seven days a week

I get no lunch breaks or vacation

Not even one stinking old coffee break

You all think time doesn't have a heart

Well you can hear us ticking all the time

Without your ticker

You wouldn't last a day

Well, from here on out

We will appreciate each other

We are best friends forever

True BFF's

So if I say something don't take it personal

You have got to take it easy

You bounce me around on your wrist in work

Only later to drop me on the floor

All I hear is

Is my cell phone o.k.

Nobody asks is Miss Time o.k.?

I will be more considerate

Can you do me just one more favor?

For all the years you have forgot about me

Sure , that's the least I can do

Name it

Can you change the name of this hub

To This Is Our Time To Shine

I will see what I can do

Gypsy Rose Lee Anxiety can easily get the best of us. I find that I worry about so many things before they happen that may of never happened anyway. The best thing for me to do is to keep active. I find the more I exercise the better I feel. My body is physically tired in a good way. My mind needs a mental rest too. When I am walking or stretching I let my mind unwind with me. I like to walk in the water ankle deep at the beach. Just listening to the sounds of the waves and the birds squawking in the distance. Takes my mind off any pressing problems. Even if just for a few hours. Then I come back with more clarity and focus. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope your day is calming and peaceful. Today might just be a lazy day to relax in the sun. Tomorrow we will feel refreshed and ready to take on the world. My best writing comes when I am relaxed and have the proper rest. Happy Sunday.

Most delightful. I needed a pick me up. Life has dealt me a blow and a sudden attack of anxiety I am now fighting and it is hard to get back on my feet and shake this thing. I hope you have a good weekend.

Linda Crampton In our busy day it is easy to just go on our way. Doing what we always do. Work, sleep, eat and squeeze in all we can to relax and watch t.v. or go on the computer. Not noticing how fast time has come and gone. As we appreciate time and hope and pray we have a lot more of it. Maybe we will make better choices and spend our remaining time with the people that mean the most. Our family and friends who love us the way we love them. The rest of the things in life is just like white noise on a record. We love to play that old record because it makes us feel great. Over time the scratches and wear and tear take its toll. It never stops us from enjoying the best of the best. The white noise is always going to be a reminder life isn't perfect so we can strive to make it better. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. I hope your day turns out Marvelous.

Mona Sabalones Gonzalez Good morning to you. It is so nice to see your visit. In the time we have left, we can choose to do many things. I choose to appreciate everyone and everything that has put a smile on my face. Over the years many things have brought me great joy. To forget them is like forgetting your parents that raised you and got you to this point. We don't have to like everything they did. Maybe they had a lot of good ideas and they worked because they carried them out. Then again maybe they made many mistakes and learned as they went. Either way, you or I wouldn't be here without there help. So if it our parents, teachers, friends, or someone who we just met. Thank you for making my life greater than it could ever be. Have a great day. I hope we may share lots of good times with Miss time. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment and share.

This is a cute conversation between the poet and time. We tend to forget that time will outlast us, and so while we can, maybe we should get to know time better. In this poem, I have.

This is an amusing and creative poem. It's also quite thought provoking with respect to the nature of time. Thank you for sharing it.
