The clock of life

The clock of life

A Poem by Najam Us Saher
"

Our time

"
THE CLOCK OF LIFE
There are clocks by our names,
They are wind-up and we are given a life to live,
They keep ticking all the time.
They tick and never stop,
Until our time ends by.
The seconds ticks and turns to moments,
The minutes represent the days,
The hours in the clock of life are the years,
Your clock is ticking in it's own way.
Slow and steady the clock of life moves,
Lying somewhere above in a heavenly place,
It ticks and waits for our time to be overdue,
Our memories cannot be erased.
Time is ticking even now,
Listen to the heartbeat and the tick of the clock,
They are for a purpose,
Which reminds us we are alive today.
No one knows when the ticking is stopped,
The clock doesn't give extra time,
It stops and make everyone alarmed except us,
Eventually, our life and the clock is done,
We played our part in our life,
That will be the time to let go,
Remember when it stops ticking,
It is death.

Thank you for entering!

Your words provide truth, life and enable us to question ourselves.

You are welcome!
The very realism of death tends to scare nobody but the few who must cower before it. I love it.

Yes you are right. Thank you very much :)
Truly a great poem.
I agree with your points that the clock of our life never stops and the memories that were framed at one point of time ,cannot be erased.It only stops when we are death.....marvelous work, Najam.
