The hands of the clock;

always steady,

ever paced

A return to a time,

steps to retrace;

Moments gone by

more memories to replace.

Time is precious,

the moments so few;

just for once,

would this clock run anew.

To reclaim a few seconds

where decisions were made;

those snippets of time,

to be ever replayed.

The second hand sweeps,

another minute gone by;

where does that time go,

gone in the blink of an eye.

If wishes were clocks,

could we set them ahead?

Or will those lost hours

come back in it's stead.

Time is a tickin'

and our clock will soon end;

and those long ago wishes,

like the hands cannot distend.

Each moment, each tick

we lose to our memory;

time is our enemy,

just part of our history.

They say we can't ever make the events ever change, and many times we can't ever make up for that loss yet I'm a believer that what we do to help all others till the last tick of our clock is the purpose of our awakening. Lady J

To reclaim a few seconds
where decisions were made;

Ah, if only we all could, most of our lives would probably be quite different.

An interesting series of reflections about time, its essence, its impact... all of this in a poem. I like the originality of "if wishes were clocks"... :-)

What a great write, I love this poem. Good job. Time keeps moving and it goes so fast, we cannot turn it back but we can learn from it. :)
