Just a Minute

Sixty seconds a minute does make,

Fifty-nine then fifty-eight.

At fifty-seven you think the present will stay,

Down to fifty-five yet you lost two right away.

From fifty-four it moves down to forty-five,

The realization hits, time does fly!

Forty-three down to thirty now all gone,

With twenty-nine left time has moved on.

Your mind now ponders that, which is left,

That unspoken word and unfulfilled dream in your head.

With twenty- five to go you begin right away,

To right the wrong and plan for the day.

As each second now ticks and you move to the end,

You wished from the start you had made time your friend.

Now the clock shows only fifteen linger,

You begin to make them count and feel rather languor.

Ten now left, Nine, Eight, then Seven,

Soon it will be five and no time for reflection.

You promise yourself with the last four,

The next minute will be different than the one before.

Excited now about the new prospect,

This minute counts down to where it will exit.

It is now the last second, fifty-nine did go by,

Your mind on the next as this minute has died.

Only one thing you failed to consider,

Time gives us this moment with no promise of a future.

The next minute has begun and the opportunity exists,

But for you dear friend your time just finished.

For us who remain we now have sixty-seconds,

My question to you is

What will you do with this minute?
