Time - Poem by Terry Biscamp

How is it in this life
That we elude our own dreams?
They’re set off
To the side
To think of on another day.

We forget
Who we once were
And who we want to be
Need to be
Have to be
For the sake of others.

What if
That day never comes
And we still remain
With dreams, wishes
Still dancing in our hearts?

And time goes by
While we remain grounded
Only watching
The many changes around us
Making sure everyone else is happy
And we forget once again, about ourselves.

And our wants, needs and hopes
Stay hidden inside
To think about..
And time takes us to a place
Sitting us down where we already were.

And still
I watch, me…I watch
As I pass through the days
The nights
Feeling my dreams and desires wilting
And time is running out.
