Our Tryst with Time
Day and night
the clock-beat ticks on and on
and we go along,
journeying on the wings of time
that never pause nor stop.
Time almighty holds us
the very moment
we come into existence.
It plays our facilitator and mentor
regulator and …
well … terminator.
We move with it and
rush with it,
sometimes we have to trail after it
and finally, part with it.
Yes, we drop down somewhere and
the time passes on.
Through the journey,
we sometimes come across happy moments
that make us delighted about the ‘good times’.
At others, we’re struck by sorrows
that make us suffer
and grieve about the ‘bad times’.
But remember, time changes!
That is it’s nature … that is its law.
Good times or bad times,
they do not come to stay forever.
They come and go.
We simply have to live them, gracefully, uncomplaingly.
That was the age-old tale
of our tryst with time.
And the moral of the tale being, that –
Through all our hardships and travails,
we’ve to hold on, with patience and courage,
doing our bit to survive, keep afloat,
until our time changes for better.
