What is time

Time, what is time all about
It is the now of today
Or the were's of yesterdays
That you must live with
Time is the watch on you wrist
Counting the moments
Watching them tic down
Making new memories

Time is lying in bed waiting
For someone to call you
To remember your there
To ask do you need help

Time is waiting for the  surgeons knife to fall
To put right what has gone wrong
To give you that fresh start
You have longed for,  time = hope

Time cant be revisited
Its the now, one tic and its gone
Use  it wisely, irretrievable
Never  regret the time given to others

The lyrics say 
"So much to do if we only have time"
Time we do have its inclination that is lacking.

    Loved it, and very beautiful. Time is the complexity with which we live all of life bot understanding, but embracing all the same. Stopping by in my poetry reading, came across this. Glad I did. Love, JuliMichelle

    I just love this one. All about time. To some people Time is very important, yet to others time don't matter. Like I said in my poem ( Everything Happens In Time ) Time is everything you said. Thanks for sharing..... Lucilla

    A good question you ask here Seren, even the best have never come up with a true answer of what time is. An old friend of mine called it the enemy, but in healing terms it can also be a friend. I think you sum it up best in your last two lines. Take care, Richard

    Hi Russell, what would you have on this piece of artwork.a thunderbolt depicting the speed of time. Maybe a blank page, with txt on it, quoting a time adage? Have a think, let me know ....thanks Russell ....Seren
