Tempus Fugit


Marianne Ziegler, Brunswick Forest

Tempus fugit, time flies by, no matter how you say it.

You cannot get back what is gone,

’cause what is done is done!

They say you shouldn’t rue what you have done,

But I sometimes regret what I haven’t done!

When I was 20 I thought I’d never age, but…

the book of like turns faster page by page!

And now that I’m ??? (well, I won’t say)…

I’m in my later years and here to stay,

for some time to come, I do pray…

tempus fugit, God willing I may.
