time, no captial t

by fragmentedspeech

time does not wait around, stand by or stop

time isn’t something to hold onto or something to drop

time simply continues with a path and no end

time simply is just a mechanism, itself not to lend

friend or fiend it stops for no one

setting the moon and setting the sun

dawn to dusk and dusk to dawn

planting your garden and mowing your lawn

time doesn’t stop for individual people

it does but, only in their minds

you would get it if you weren’t older

some day you won’t understand

only left those behind

I promise to still hold their hand
