Time flies when you're young,
with so much to see and do
before bedtime sneaks up on you.
Time stalls when you're a teen,
waiting for that license and a date
while feeling that you're doing it all late.
Time speeds up once you're grown,
responsibilities are part of life now too
and nothing seems quite so new.
But when you're old, time lurks,
waiting in the shadows; it won't bend
time lurks and waits for the end.
