This is the way I see time. As we change, our perspective of time changes too.

Time is like a bird,

It whisks through the sky

As we marvel at its grace

 

The moments of love,

Those tender caresses,

Suddenly it spreads its wings

 

The shouts of joy,

Cover-your-mouth experiences,

Suddenly it soars, high into the clouds

 

The lazy moments,

The idle hours,

Suddenly it flutters away

 

The tears of anguish,

Thoughts of despair,

Suddenly the bird falls down

 

The hugs and smiles,

Encouraging voices,

Suddenly it spreads its wings once more

 

Time is like a bird

We can embrace it or let it be free

But never will we capture it.
