Time is that Thing...

Time is that Thing we will never have enough of
And cannot afford to waste
Therefore I want to learn to slow my hands
To feel and touch and taste

Year folds over year; a sheer and subtle tease
Of morning, noon to night
And often I am blinded to the seamless ease
Of a moment’s appetite

When I run my fingers over Duty’s veiled beauty
I want to experience Love
In its fullest wonder because Time is that Thing
We will never have enough of

We all get the same amount of Time in one are we touching it?
...I must be off to Duty's beauty lest I waste this twenty-four hour Gift!
