My Name Is Time

I'm fleeting ruthless and unkind
Don't let me get inside your mind
I cant be seen by mortal eyes
I often catch you by surprise

You try to measure who I am
I'm not your ally or your friend
As years go by a wrinkled frown
You try in vain to slow me down

I set the boundaries strong and true
A finite period just for you
So who am I who undermines
I am the keeper known as time
