The Ramblings of Father Time

by Abbas Safdari

Woe to those who waste me
For it will only destroy thee
remember do not forget, see
for I am Father Time.

Believe they, in abundance, have me
others just cannot afford me
I come for all in plenty
for I am Father Time

Indeed! some do despise me
And Alas! some seek to control me
Some glance at my past, they whine
But remember, I am Father Time.

Oh joy! some do use me wisely
and some with patience, use me nicely
Reward them, I do, with embrace prime
for I am Father Time

Beware, everyone has an end to meet
But remember these lessons i teach
Never let your fate unweave
Farewell, it is time, Time leaves
