Time Is…

Time is no longer on my side

It won’t wait for me

Nor fit in a bottle

And too fast to see

Time is a disappearing act

Here one moment

Then a faded memory

Too late to lament

Time washes the record

Details fall away

History turns to gold

Truth is just hearsay

Time is a force multiplier

The future looks bigger

Although just mortal sized

Packing the wallop of a jigger

Time is the cruelest

Withers, forgets, offers lies

Leaving behind a faint copy

An imposter to memorialize

Time is about choices

Managing competing priorities

After fantasizing options

Are cold morning realities
