Time is Running Out

Time is Running Out

A Poem by Cherry
"

Moments are limited, enjoy each and every one.

"
Think of all the timepieces
telling us what's what.
Hurry up!
Slow down!
Wait! 
Hourglasses counting down every grain of sand,
like the desert in a glass cocoon
a sandstorm coating the seconds
we so carelessly fritter away.
Time
a precious thing.
So fragile
we
can't
keep
the shadow on the sundial.
Come back to me yesterday,
I'm sorry I didn't say goodbye.
Come back.
Please...

The cynic may say time is running out from the day you're born.
But time is really yours for the taking. Make it last.
