You've been with me all my life.
I suppose you will be here till I die.
In these my times of happiness and strife
Both here and gone in the blink of an eye
Being a great ally and cruel foe
On a infinite track with nowhere to go
You’ve mended my wounds like no other can
Yet been the folly of so many a man
You've taught me great lessons in both seconds and years
Alas although you have hands you have no ears
You reach out and affect us all
Yet you do not listen, you do not stall
Sometimes you run fast like the speed of light
And other times, moments seem to last all night
Understood by none you hold great knowledge
Yet also so simple you have no course at a college
Although you are not taught, lessons you do teach
A great mentor to all within your mighty reach
From the beginning to the end
You’re my nemesis and my friend
You have many faces we all do see
Yet also invisible to all of thee
From before, from now, from future.
You are Time, my greatest tutor.
