catching time

Stop running so fast, time.
Can’t you see I’m trying to catch you?
Don’t run away so petulantly;
You must know that we need you.

Please don’t be like that,
I surely wasn’t trying to offend you.
I was just distracted and
Forgot you were still run-run-running away.

Oh, I could descend into a maudlin muck
And wish I could turn you back,
But even while I was down there,
You would still be running, wouldn’t you?

Well, then, here I come.
I’ll try to keep up
As best I can
Until you’re out altogether.
