Out of Time

We never realise

how short a day is

when we decide to put things

off until tomorrow

for tomorrow will come

before we know it

and then we are running

out of time left to borrow.

By putting everything

on the long finger

we leave ourselves open to regrets

for we know we have

run out of time

and now it is far too late

to press reset.

We should cherish the time

we have together

and try to live in the moment

for before we know it

our days will have run out

and there will be no time

left for atonement.
