Time In A Bottle
 
I wish I could put time in a bottle
Slow down the days speeding by
Save some like sick-leave days
To extend my days before I die.
 
I wish I could put a time-clock on that bottle
Stop it from running when I’m asleep.
Turn it on when I’m doing what I enjoy
Turn it off when boredom runs deep.
 
If I could put time in a bottle,
I’d save the unused minutes until the day
When death steals close to my ebbing life
When health has too quickly slipped away.
 
But since time waits for no man
I must take each day as it is meant
Use each minute to the fullest that I can
And thank God for the time he has lent.

Jeannette,

It's so true, you can only live one day at a time. "And thank God for time he has lent" Truly beautiful.

Time In a Bottle - something I think we all wish we had.
Reviewed by Dawn Anderson 10/1/2008
Jeanette, this is so beautiful. It starts out a bit sad and then comes full circle in that it wisely tells us to live life as the gift it is.
