It is what it is-def.
Let’s not waste TIME
There is no right or wrong,
only your truth, and mine.

My art

You didn’t regard time the way I did,
I respect time so much that I trace it.
You ran in and out of it,
but didn’t waste it.
Your time was seldom spent.
You saved it like a miser.
You thought you were exempt,
but I was wiser.
I knew it wouldn’t last.
I budgeted my time wisely.
You held yours in contempt,
holding on to the past.

I saved time for rainy days,
and sleeping in,
Walks along the beach,
and traveling.
I made time to stop and smell roses.
You only had seconds between stops,
to administer love in small doses,
(No time for vacation)
then it was back on schedule,
you’d call me at the station.
I had made a pledge,
to be present in each moment,
to spend time in wonder and awe,
but, your time was always on edge,
not spontaneous but chosen,
no time to chill or thaw,
like an icicle on a ledge,
and if I wanted to inbibe, in it,
I had to love time, served frozen,
drink it through a straw.
And savor every minute.
