Life & Time - Poem by Ruth Walters

What if we're all trapped
in this little space of time,
living it over and over again?
What if we never really die
but continue to re-live our lives
for all eternity.

Each of us in our own little
space and time capsule,
meeting the same dramas,
same traumas,
with just a smidgeon of a chance
to put things right.

Have you ever walked into a room
you've never been in
and known what it would be like,
from the wallpaper
to the carpet and the table lamp,
have you?

Am I the only one to admit I've known
what's going to happen next,
felt or thought it before it's happened?
What if that's it, a continuum.
Is my grandfather in a parallel time
while I can only exist in mine.
