tick-tock
tick-tock
tick-tock
the minutes turn into hours
hours
empty and wasted
what have i done?
"daddy, can we play?"
i'm busy
"daddy, can you read to me?"
ask your mother
"daddy, do you love me?"

busy
always busy
not enough hours

NOT ENOUGH TIME!!!

"daddy will play tomorrow."
"daddy will read tonight."

i'll be there in a minute
minutes turn into hours
those hours have turned into years

"gran-pa, do you love us?"

busy

life is what happens to you while your busy making other plans.... Jhon Lennon

Reminds me of a song about the same subject.....time will get away from us if we let it
"If I could only stand on a strret corner with my hat in hand, and get people to throw their wasted time into it!" ~Bernard Berenson

------------------
"In the depths of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer" ~Albert Camus
