Ticking By

Ticking By
Form: Free Verse
Theme: Life
Object: A clock

Days spent in nine-to-five
watching the seconds tick by
wish time would go faster
to the end of the working day
and the years pass by
in the days of free time
hours pass quickly when having fun
and down on the beach
wishes lost on the waves
for time to slow down
and the years pass by
in brief moments of wonder
caught in the blink of an eye
or in a lover’s kiss
fleeting memories and we wish
time would stand still
and the years pass by
until
the day time stops
and only peace remains
