If I'd been into rhyme
as my lover slowly died
I would have rhymed
how slowly passes time.
Being into time's speed,
for one 'slowly' or the other or both,
substitute 'relatively quickly'
and see the effect of that deed.
As Einstein showed, time is relative, and bends and stretches as it proceeds, relentlessly.
A timeless poem of the wish for more? .....well penned Douglas
Time's speed! ! Life and death. Thanks for sharing.

Belated Congrats on POD, Douglas! Well deserved!
The poem is significant when people say, " I don't have time" , and at the same time some others ay, " My time is moving slowly" . It's all the mind that has to pace with the time
A nice poem on relativity of time. It's a debate whether we follow the time's speed or time follows our speed.
To me, time can pass, or seem to pass, either quickly or slowly, depending on the activity in which we are involved. A most astute poem.
