Time.

This was written for The Community Storyboard‘s weekly prompt ‘One Day…’ Everyone should have a look at the great pieces over there.

One day is no more than a number,

That is marked by the hands on a clock,

And tomorrow will never be longer,

Than the yesterdays of which we forgot.

*

We have twenty four hours to ponder,

If the path we have travelled is true,

Or perhaps the road over yonder,

Is the place where we live life anew.

*

A few precious minutes of memories,

Of love and of life and of laughter,

Where we grieve for the lost possibilities,

As we search for our long ever after.

*

Seconds they go in the blink of an eye,

Just moments in time that we miss,

Like the fluttering wings of a butterfly,

Or the touch of hot breath in a kiss.

*

For one day is no more than a number,

And life is just the counting of time.

A conundrum to solve before slumber,

And a mountain we mortals must climb.
