Where Does Time Go…
Relentless this mind to wander,
to sift through the sands of past,
the joys and what’s pained the most,
in this journey of time’s preponderance.
When past is far more than future’s moments,
one measures the balance and in past may slip,
to relive life for all it has meant,
and in balance find a purpose.
So speedily time arrives,
its impartial view no deliverance,
yet we must make peace with its fleeting,
for life comes so slowly, yet goes so quickly.
And in memory, we realise that spell,
that taking for granted,
until its almost too late to appreciate,
all those moments now gone.
Life is moments, one after another,
and if we are not present,
we lose so much, experience so little,
and stand looking back to wonder,
where did it go.
