Time

And only now I realise that I need You, Time

Time was a blur.

What happened I don’t know.

A continuous monotonous stream of nothingness.

A time spent wishing, thinking but not feeling time.

As it ebbed away from me I tried to reach for it,
But I was not concerned to use my time to take hold of time.

A day not usitilisng, experiencing and moaning of time is pointless.

Time waits for no man, yet wait was all I seemed to do!

I waited for something to happen.
I waited for things to move.
I waited for people to enter and people to leave.
I waited.

I’ve wasted time waiting.

The deceitfulness of time.

The trickery of time.

And now I can’t get it back.

What a waste of time!

When The Light Goes Out

Posted on April 7, 2010. Filed under: Poetry | Tags: , , , , , |

When the light goes out,
All is revealed.

Here in the dark, I see clearly enough.

I see the pain of the day and the thoughts that have plagued me.
I see the problems I could not solve and the dreams of that daylight.
I see the people I let in and those I missed.
I feel my heart slowly rest from the day’s loops and holes.

But, I am still not at peace.

When the light goes out,
All is revealed.

I think about how I used the time God gave me.
A time spent wishing, thinking but not feeling time?
Spent moaning and not appreciating time?
As it ebbed away from me I tried to reach for it.
But was I not concerned enough to use my time to take hold of time?

I can’t sleep for thinking about it

I sit up and to the corner of my eye, I see it.
A candle flicker.

This candle is my hope for tomorrow.
A renewed tomorrow.
It flickers brightly.

And now I am at peace.

And in prayer, I hope it never goes out.

And if it does…?
