Where Is Time?

Time and tide waits for none
But I have waited all alone for one
It is none other than my ideal son
At last my time has begun!

The concept, time is infinite and undefined
Whereas my time interval is short but well defined
We strive hard all the time to enjoy few moments of time.
Please make those precious moments truly rhyme!

Stretch your few seconds of mine to the eternal bounds;
Make me feel your life all around.
Bring out all your lively feelings to the earthly grounds;
A noble son like you on this earth is rarely found!

    The title 'Where Is Time? ' intrigues with the longing, internal wait for an 'ideal son'. This eternal love for the awaited child, this universal longing, can be expressed in many ways. One of the best mystic ways is as you have said 'The concept, time is infinite and undefined' which flows into many universal truth. Your son is fortunate to recieve such unconditional love as his blessing. Beautiful sentiments. (Report) Reply

    Where's time?
    Here and everywhere in any space... and we breathe in time with air
    Where's time?
    I cant tell you specifically where, because it with me when i read your poem
    But u ask again where's time? ?
    I told you i dont know the exact place but time with me when i smile for your poem
    No matter where's time
    Because when i smiled that's time for you Ma Rekha-Unwritten Soul (Report) Reply

    This poem is a nice invitation to your son, and a wonderful question. You interpose time 'infinite and undefined' with love to your son.This two things are connected in order to let you to exert your duty as a mother to your son.Your time is 'short interval but well defined'. So you invite your son to 'Stretch your few seconds of mine to eternal bounds' to 'make me feel your life all around'.You show as that time is never enough for a mother to a enjoy her son..Cristina Teodor (Report) Reply

  • Rookie Jenny Gordon (2/16/2011 10:02:00 PM)

    Ya, that precious time together with your cherished well-beloved, while time waits for none, and is fleetest when most wanted...what a fascinating contemplation, and yet another well-written tribute to an affectionate, doting mother and her precious son. The title poses the everlasting question in that love, for time is forever insufficient in that arena. Beautiful! ! (Report) Reply
