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?

your welcome :P
I love how creative this poem is, I loved "time only matters when I'm with you" but also loved "let this be the beginning and not the end". I hate when time runs out and love when it begins. Very well done!

Thanks I feel the same way.
Wow, this is really good. It seems really deep and thoughtful, like it came right from your heart. There are some really ingenious lines in here, and the ending is very clever... It leaves itself open, with options... A question is a good way to end. I feel like your last line really sums up your whole idea. "Don't rush your choice nor pick just one" is expressed throughout the poem, especially the end.

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.

This was a great stanza, I really liked that one. You make some really great points in here, accompanied by phenomenal rhymes... "that wound time cannot mend" is definitely worth thinking about... A noteworthy poem, my friend. Keep it up!
