The Timer

What happened
It seems as if we were minding our own business
Trying to help others when we could
Enjoying our children and grandchildren
Like most, we had up and down times
Never really thought about US
How we would fare with Father time
But here we are now
Sometimes showing up in hospital garb
Other times a visiting nurse arrives
Maybe more of a limp or a new wrinkle
Slower yes we are much slower
But it seems as if your face is just the same
So soft and inviting
Can’t stop wanting to just hold you
Father Time might be counting the sand crystals
But our time will always be now
I love you.
