I watch the hourglass
Nervously…I see
The sand moves
Ever faster…
Time runs away
From me…you too?

I know time waits
For nobody…
Not that I’d expect it
But could it not
Speed ahead at
Double time?

I look around me…
So much to do
I thought life was
Supposed to slow down
But I haven’t seen that…
Buddy, can you spare
A few minutes?
