Reminders of time.
Keepers of time.
Time that marches on
Heedless of my feverish attempts
To keep pace with its strident march.
Time, you are merciless.
Will you not wait for me,
Stay. I implore you.
Stretch this moment into eternity.
Another day, another hour,
Another breath, another glance –
The Sun, the Shadows,
The restless day
Become my foes, allies of time.
Time – in vain I try to hold on,
Until at last, letting go,
I await another time,
