Where Does The Time Go?

Try as we might
We cannot fight
The fast-forward of tick and tock
This breathing space
Of grace-to-grace
Can siphon hours from a clock
Where suddenly
We turn to see
Another year quite nearly done
The pockets of
Its live-laugh-love
Emptied into …where Time has gone

Where is the sphere
Of yesteryear?
From where to where do seasons flow?
Is there a land
Of silver sand
Hinged to a sea of long ago?
And is its sky
The 'my-oh-my'
That time has gathered through the years
From those of us
Who gaze and fuss
At 'oh, how fast time disappears'

We were at another 50th birthday celebration today,
and for lack of anything better to say to friends
we don't see nearly often enough,
We say 'it's been a long time,
but my, how that time flew'
