Savor Time

I am learning to savor time

Instead of dreading its quick escape

Or trying to travel backwards

Into experiences I cannot change.

I am coming to terms with aging

Of the growing chasm of my youth

Surrendering the need to look forever younger

Learning that beauty reflects the truth.

In this world where we pretend to be invincible

Ignoring our obvious mortal decline

We forget that to live is a precious gift

Only reverenced by the passage of time.
