Time Envy

Time can't be stopped
or placed on a pedestal
or put in a box.
However, with Time,
we can Improve and Grow,
we can Forgive and Pray,

she would say -
Do not envy...

Time to let the day spin
as it may.
As time speeds...

I could just see the little freckled face boy at the river - made me smile. There were several poems I really liked but this one warmed my heart.
