Time--A Short Poem

Updated on April 12, 2014

the uncertainty

of the future

is ever-present

as is

the finality

of the past

and the frailty

of the present

.................and yet

Time

.........is all

..................we have

      How true. The finality of the past, even regrets can't change anything. Nicely said.

      How true Laura. Time is such an important part of our lives. It is the way which we handle it that depends on how long or short it is. You have done a good job in writing this. I voted it up, pinned and shared it.
