Lest Time Pass us by

by Karen Monie   Aug 30, 2012

Forget the world, and all but us
Drink to the fill like it never was
For though time sits and waits on the cautious
It merely does that to spite the obnoxious

It comes and goes in the twinkle of an eye
Passing by, not much of a warning as a sigh
And if one should try and humble time
It would drag its feet, even if offered a dime

So come, beloved, and let us be merry
Lest time pass us by, and we be sorry
So if we'd ever die with regret
We won't bother, 'cause our merry we did beget
