Running Out of Time

—∞—

To run out of time
Knowing
There’s not enough time
At a certain age
 
After much has been done
Little is left
Nothing awaits
Expectations met
 
Yet
Something is missing
Snatched away,
Actually
 
But to regain
That being denied
To reclaim, to undo
To heal
 
Takes time
There’s not enough time
I’m afraid
At a certain age

    Very nice, Tom. It reminds me of a recent Kris Kristofferson song that observes how we get our bearings and get better at expressing ourselves as we get nearer to the grave.
