Spare Time: all that is left.../ The Sunday Whirl -- Poets United Poets Pantry
Spare Time: all that is left…
time is short important bad feelings
should not trample the day make it count as time left
is downhill all the way sand running through the hourglass none to spare
until this time this spare time has been an uphill journey
was there a ransom asked a ransom paid keep your pen moving
create the tale the last chapter run your fingers across the page
collect words in your basket protect them from the rain the ink will run dangerously
ideas will smudge and will be soon forgotten with words packed densely
return to that last chapter make it the best of all the rest
the band plays your favorite tune just a little off-key take aim
and release the arrow there is still plenty of time to laugh and play
and even walk in the rain the sun rises each morning brings magic to the world
the cat licks his fur gets ready for the day the spare time that is our time
count each grain of sand notice how the grains stick between your fingers
feel the sun on your back write it down make no changes
