Killing Time

Recommended Posts


Whisper soft, the falling rain,
Conveys a dreary sound.
And takes my thoughts to long ago
When you were still around.

The sighing of the autumn wind-
Is quite in tune with mine.
A lonely man, a lonely house...
I sit here, killing time.

Ah, what a waste, to kill the thing-
Which we all seem to lack.
That, once it’s gone, so precious seems
But nought can bring it back.

But I suppose the irony-
Is there for all to see...
It’s only fair that I kill time,
For time is killing me.

Hi GS, quite clever!  I confess that I might like the piece even more without the final stanza!
