Time keeps on ticking
Time can be measured
And time can be spent
Sometimes you’ll wonder
Just where the time went

Time is a villain
Or sometimes a friend
You want it to linger
Or maybe to end

Time is a robber
A thief in the night
You can’t overcome it
It’s not a fair fight

Time is a blessing
It grants you a life
And yet at the same time
It cuts like a knife

Time keeps on ticking
It never stands still
You’ll never outrun it
Try hard as you will

Time is amorphous
It doesn’t have weight
Yet time can hang heavy
When faced with a wait

Time can be endless
When lying in bed
But treasure each moment
You have ‘till you’re dead

Time is forever
As far as we know
It just keeps on going
Too fast or too slow

Time can be borrowed
That’s what they say
If that’s how you’re living
You’re going to pay

Time waits for no man
And no woman too
It just keeps on moving
So what can you do?

BUT...

Time can be wrestled
Knocked off of its track
Now Fall is upon us
We'll set our clocks back

Time can be thwarted
By turning a dial
We are time’s masters
... if just for awhile
