Because Time Flies...

This week I added two tots and an extra day to the childcare routine. I repeat the weathered words-
Where did this last year go?!!

A year ago one of these tots was born,

then blink! 
she is one! and mom is back to work!

The wings that bear away the day 
Flash silver in the sun 
We from our heaps of frazzled fray 
And battles to be won 
Behold the Bird the draws the dawn 
From some far-phantom nest 
Ere dusk across the air is drawn 
And feathers fold in rest 

Where soon the fledgling, wild with youth 
Will join the gaping clan 
That wonders at the ageless truth 
Of fleeting days of man 
As Time’s momentous bird of prey 
Startles us with its wings 
And keens us to the changeless way 
Of ever-changing things 

We, tethered to Time’s old surprise 
Surge with the awe-struck throng 
Aboard the barge of  'how time flies’ 
That draws life’s charge along 
And teaches us to treasure more 
The moments as they come 
Because Time flies toward a door 
Not one will return from

Psalm 39:5
You, indeed, have made my days as handbreadths, 
and my lifetime as nothing before You. 
Truly each man at his best exists as but a breath.
