Lost to Time




It slips through my fingers like water

I can’t catch it

I can’t find it

No refunds

No do-overs – the moments I’ve lost to time.


She’s older every day

I can’t catch up with her yesterday

I can’t find the moments lost

There’s no refunding the days

No doing over of mistakes – they are lost to time.


Time past has gone

Time present I live now

Finding every moment wrapped as a gift

Refunding what was seemingly lost

Present mistakes corrected – that I lost to time.


Tomorrow has yet to be lived

Planning the minutes to the full

Looking for gifts hidden in time

Tomorrow refunds yesterday’s loss

Never mistake new moments – else they also be lost to time.
