MayPoWriMo 7

Having never run
a marathon this must be
like a marathon

No one ever trained
for something like this even
though we are human

And know things go wrong
here today gone tomorrow
no second chances

So many moments
we will not be able to
relive but that is

No different from all
the other moments we live
but they do happen

Regardless of what
our best intentions may be
time runs on no time

Like the dream you had
for sure you would not forget
yet it slips away

Never to repeat
even as the same dream comes
back to revisit

The same as before
time waits in the universe
only to happen

Too soon it just stops
