Time is a good friend.
It can be an enemy.
Best spend time wisely.

Painful times of grief.
Fleeting time of happiness.
Cherish each moment.

Angry times destroy:
peace of mind and troubled heart.
Calm times give you strength.

Challenging times ask:
patience, respect, solutions:
best welfare for all.

Impossible times:
Seek answers. Harmonious ways.
Goodness kicks evil.

Nostalgic times cry:
Longing for happier times,
Longing for love shared.

Nostalgia whispers:
Make time for golden moments,
Sharing timeless love.

Shame on stolen time.
Deceit flows in hiding guilt.
Truth outlives those lies.

Time can match our moods.
Time seemed to crawl when we wait.
Joyful times fly past.

An elusive time.
Many wasted times for what?
Ebb of times: remorse.

Saving time merits.
Fulfilment matches time spent:
doing what we love.

A gift of lifetime:
your unconditional love,
lasting for all times.
