Time Is A Moment

Youth is ephemeral,
Though we never believe it
Until we are old 
And try to retrieve it.
Then we discover
What we should have known-
Time is a moment 
We cannot own.
But that may be the thing
That makes youth grand-
That canny inability 
To understand.

    How true Beverly! The concept of time and its usage seems insignificant when one is younger...until we grow older and mourn about all the lost opportunities! Well written poem!

    Now that I'm in my 50's I have a hard time remembering what it is that I understand. Nice write. Tony
