Wasted Time - Poem by Andrea Healy

Time goes by fast
Throughout time we crash
Other times we laugh
In the end we pray that our lives will last.....

Tomorrow has not yet come
We never know when our time is done
This may be a shock
To those who run on their own time clock.....

We want things to change
When we are the one's who stay the same
We don't think about the time
That can easly be exchanged.....

The sun may not shine tomorrow
Some shelter themselves in sorrow
We should live everyday to the fullest
The truth is that our lives are borrowed.....

We need to learn to embrace
The things which lie in our face
The things we take for granted
We do not know how much time we have been handed....

As I go to sleep
I'll remind myself to wake
I know i'm not on my own time
This precious time is not mine to waste....
