Time goes too slowly when you want to wish it away,
Time goes too quickly when you wish you could stay.
Time doesn't wait while you "get it together,"
Nor does it quicken like a change in the weather.
It is patient and consistent, ever ticking away,
The pendulum of existence, by night and by day.
Take your time, and use it, with great thought and care,
Suprisingly and knowingly, it will not always be there.
