Pausing Time

Time
is not
my
friend. Like
sand slipping
between
my 
fingers,
time escapes
my grasp and flies
far away,
where it
is
no more.
If only
time could
be
put on
pause.

    Time marches in its own parade. While the rest of us all slowly fade. Eternity is relevant until your time has all been spent. Peace. :)
