Time seems to stand still;

canít rush it Ė

it seems to speed past;

canít stop it.

Things will happen in their own time.

No wish or action can make them tick faster

or move more slowly.

Some days I feel ancient, 

but without the wisdom time offers.

I am young compared to some,

old compared to others;

barely begun within the span of time.

I would like to turn time backward,

to recapture moments of delight;

undo moments of pain.

But I canít.

I donít really want to.

The joys and grief of my past

carved me into who I am.

Change is the only constant in life.

Time passes;

even death wonít stop it.
