“ Time ” ~ a perfidious ruse ~


Time will pass

Ever so fast,

That down the line

You soon discover

You’ve left behind,

Neglected days

Sadly vacant,

Obscured per se

To inexistence,

As time unused

Be ever lost,

So best not let

Time idly pass,

Or have life choose

How it should last,

For you’ll have played

In time’s perfidious ruse!

“ A Little More Time ” ~ save to mark time ~



A little more time

To recall a mood

I’d left behind,

When early in life

I’d been too busy,

Save to mark time…


A little more time

To live with candour,

Discover my other,

Whom I’d forsaken

For visions of grandeur…


A little more time

To make room for soul,

Treated more kindly

More wisely than bold…


A little more time

To shake free shock

That life passes blindly,

Overriding the clock…


A little more time

To share a measure

Of neglected kindness,

And taste the pleasure                                           

Of compassionateness…


A little more time

To recapture the scent

Of evocative memories,

With all of their follies

As life chose be meant!
