Time (Quatrains)


I can't help it but look at the clock,
It is time for me to move on for the day,
And do so many more things around here,
Because time never stop for me and you.

Since we wake up till we all go to sleep,
Time advances silently, and endlessly,
And we all need to get our breath, sometimes,
But time was designed for God, to go on eternally.

At least, on this earthly sod will end sometimes, we all know,
But time will go on for others, for sure after we're gone, and in spite
Of all, and even if life finishes here, still time will go on and on,
And those left behind will have to deal still, with life and time, thats right!

Time is ticking in every working clock all the time,
So take your time for everything you need to do,
But, please remember to take time for rest to,
And with family and friends spend some of it too...

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
