A Twist Of Time

Passing the time, while wishing for more,
Stumbling aimlessly through each day,
Focussing on all the little things,
Missing the point at which we stray.

A blinkered vision of a shallow life,
Blending days with weeks and years,
Forgotten dreams as life moves on,
At a pace too fast for tears.

Drifting along to the sound of Spring,
Enticed by the summer sun,
Catching a glimpse as autumn comes around,
And decades pass in turn.

With age and experience now to hand,
And a twist of time to reflect,
The little things seem blurry now,
As we see clearly all we neglect.

With renewed values and a broader vision,
We start each day anew,
Embracing life and slowing down,
To get a better view.

Savour each season, feel the crush of the sun,
Take time out to see what’s real,
Tip-toe through life it’s your only one,
And time is ticking at your heel.

    Nice work on something most people will feel sometime. Though I think there’s a typo with the last word.

    Time does pass so quickly…good advise in the poem about enjoying the time you have.

    Time passes so fast. Interesting thoughts. How many of us even stop to listen or observe the changing of the seasons? Thanks for sharing. And that final line makes me think of Marvell’s To His Coy Mistress.

    • Hello – and thanks for taking the time to both read and comment on my poem – I’m glad you enjoyed it. Marvell’s poem was not one I was familiar with ( I am now – just looked it up! ) but it is a very nice read – thanks 😉
