Time

Not on my side.  Biding.

Race against.  Relations

With time are contrary.

I’d have plenty, do what

 

I’d like; disappointed,

I must use time wisely,

Lest I run out.  Demands

On mine mean diaries

 

Show choc-a-block days, no

Time for self amidst my

Commitments.  Spacing out

Appointments, setting time

 

Aside to use as my

Own, I run short.  Only

So much available

To pursue interests.

 

Therefore: prioritise.

I select key moments.

Choose carefully, create

Instants: pleasure, meaning

 

Emotional import.

Limited resource drives

Careful, creative use.

I’m building repertoires

 

Of experience, so

When I run out, I know

I’ve extracted as much

As I can from the time

 

Available.  Choosing

Essential, meaningful

Interactions with the

Most important people.

 

Because that’s what I want

To remember.  Lives I’ve

Touched.  Times I’ve been mixed up

In moments, in events.

 

I’m building memory

Banks to draw from.  Knowing

Family, friends, colleagues:

Being part of their lives.
