Time grows on every man,
Man tries the make of it the best he can.
A word that never stops ticking,
Clocks the highest in the world watch!
Time that goes on endlessly,
Time that never stops.
Time that never stays a minute,
Time that never waits.
Time, when hard, can be so cruel,
Time when happy, elates.
Time razes mighty fortes to ground,
It sows thorns in king's crown.
Time sees every thing go by,
Misses nothing, though always on flight.
Time can powder hard rocks to dust,
Time can erode solid iron to rust.
Time can be your worst enemy,
Time can be the best of friends.
Time can change the course of rivers,
Time can make the deserts shiver.
Time can be a bed of roses,
Time can be a crown of thorns.
Time can fell the mightiest nations,
From dust can craft most beauteous creation.
Time can sometimes stop for you,
When you wait for your beloved.
Time can fly so fast for you,
When you're on a rendezvous.
Time can make moss grow on palaces,
Time can render barren green gardens.
Time can be a balm to your sores,
Time can deal severest of blows.
Time is the most sought after commodity,
Time can take you from here to eternity.
Time heals the deepest of wounds,
Time deals deepest of wounds.
Time keeps you on your toes,
Time is money; time is foe.
Time, when it will change its mood,
Beware, you might never know!
Time is wonderful; time is beauty,
Time is cruel; time is ugly.
So, beware of time my friend,
Never, ever take it for granted!
Never, ever play with Time!
Never squander away your Time!
Never mock the time's potential,
Never doubt its possible might.
Time is a desert vast, an ocean deep,
Time is shallow; Time is a creep.
Time; never undermine its value,
Hark! Listen to its chime!
It keeps on ticking away in you,
It keeps on ticking away from you.
Time keeps a vigil all the time!
Time is this and much more,
We can never reach its core...
