Time

Time 347x400

 

TIME 

Where has time gone? Has he left forever,

Never more to return?

Or, will he come back to me

In a rush, like a flood,

One day when I no longer need him?

When my days are numbered,

And my friends all gone,

Will time be my companion,

Sitting beside me like an unwanted guest,

Overstaying his welcome?

Not then, but now, I need him.

 

Judy Binns Nemeth  (Published in, Over the Rainbow – an Anthology of African Verse,                                               1996)
