What Is Time - Poem by George Savige

It's time that marches,
So they say.
Where is it going?
Tell me pray.

It marches on
And ever on.
Some time is lost,
But never gone.

It's always there
For you and me.
We often waste it
Needlessly.

But we can use it
'Till we die,
Or sit and watch it
Slipping by.

It can't be bought;
It can't be sold.
And time goes faster
When we're old.
