TIME

Time is your rival…Time is your friend…
We think about time…Time and again…
Time is your buddy…Time is your pal…
Time is eternal…In the depths of hell…

Time can be wasted…But time can’t be saved…
In no time at all…They are digging your grave…
Yes time fly’s by…But it never comes back…
It sneaks up on you… Like a heart attack...

Be mindful of the minutes…The days and the hours…
Time waits for no one…Take time to sniff flowers…
For someday those flowers…Will lay as a spray…
On a flag draped casket… they carry away…

Then the only thing that matters…is that little thin line…
Between the birth and the death date…on the stone where you lie…
How did you spend your time…Is what the thin line say’s?
Did you take time to serve others…or your selfish needs instead?

Tomorrow is the future…Yesterday the past…
I’m living in the present…And time is passing fast…
I wonder if you think of me…If I ever cross your mind…
Living on this Submarine…Writing poems about time…
