What Time is Good for You

What Time is Good for You

A Poem by That_Guy
"

As it passes us by lets take advantage of it

"
They say it heals all wounds and flies when you’re having fun,
Then why does it seem to drag on every time I go for a run.
I’m being told it’s running out,
So what’s this killing it all about?

Time is of the essence and cannot quit,
Now get up and  lets make the most of it.
A night out on the town,
Or just a day in the sun,
Don’t rush your choice nor pick just one.

Time only matters when I’m with you,
And never hurts more than I’m used to.
It need not be every waking moment,
But in my life you’re the main component.

Let this be the beginning and not the end,
For that wound time cannot mend.
And if it would help I’d make it stand still,
 So I’m sure Father Time would make do,
Now tell me, what time is good for you?

Such a chillaxed' poem, Personally I like endings like this
Another beautiful read I have to say, I would love hearing it being said.
Sounds like a promised land for a very lucky individual.
Big ups'!

Wow, that was amazing. When you read a poem that makes you visualize the imagery and the meanings behind the words, you know it's a good poem. The flow is great and the word choices work together soo well. Awesome work, man! Definitely putting this one in the library!

Awesome, thank you so much. I strive for that reaction when I really put forth effort in my writing.
This write has beautiful questions in it of reality, it really speaks to me.
Your lines as: "A night out on the town, Or just a day in the sun, Don’t rush your choice nor pick just one." and "If it would help I’d make it stand still, I’m sure Father Time would make do, So tell me, what time is good for you?" are really good. I will read more of you!

Hey this is pretty good man. I like the part that says "Let this be the beginning and not the end" and where this finishes at, "So tell me, what time is good for you?" excellent flow, and message!.
