I tried to catch Time
but like a butterfly, it fluttered away
so I sat in the dimming sunlight
and watched it fade to grey

For Time slipped through my fingers,
and began to fly around
It flew past my nursery
and landed on caps and gowns

It blew past the university
and though the church, it zipped
It landed on the veil
then suddenly, Time tripped

Time showed me the unfamiliar
sounds of “Im sorry for your loss”
Then Time showed the final resting place
and suddenly, time stopped.
