Time oh Time What Would I Do?
By Katherine B. Parilli
Time move quick,
Time move slow,
Time stand still,
Time run forward,
No time fall back.
Oh which of these I want,
This poor little pup does not know.
For when I am hungry time drags on,
but when I am having fun time suddenly does run.
Oh some days when for something great I long,
how I wish I could press fast forward,
but when I think of the heartless work of the cruel hand of time,
I think I could not be happier than if I had the power to pause or rewind
the thoughtless hand of unfeeling Father time.
Oh to spring forward or fall back,
to travel forward through the dull drums of time with lightening speed,
or to make life snail along when the clouds of life are fluffy and blue
I wish I knew.
But of this one thing,
and this one thing alone
can I say with confidence,
that I would give anything to spend more time with you.
