Time


Was TIME born with all the sky?
Can TIME suffer and also die?
Is TIME flat? Or is TIME round?
Where is TIME? Can TIME be found?
Is TIME there with each beat of the heart?
Was TIME there from the very start?
Must TIME go to that being made?
Does TIME show by that being fade?
Can TIME give and also take?
Must TIME be for that to make?
Is TIME real? How is TIME there?
Can TIME be found in a breath of air?
Does the portal of TIME drape the eye as it blinks?
Can TIME be more stranger than a brain that thinks?
Does TIME provide a way dimensions are spaced?
Are all creatures of TIME somehow inwardly paced?
Is all manner of TIME with all matter that be?
Does TIME flow endlessly?
How does the future with TIME flow past?
Does TIME move slow? Can TIME move fast?
Is TIME bound? Or is TIME free?
Is TIME that what is meant to be?

    Time is neither here not there
    But deep within our pulsating hearts
    Which must some day really stop
    When we have on life stage played our parts..........

    Like this too, maybe two or three lines less might make it even better, the idea tires slightly towards the end.
    A good poem, enjoyed it. (Report) Reply

    Time is what happens between you and me
    Time is what keeps me going when you are gone away from me

    Good and inspiring poem. Time is both within and without
