OctPoWriMo: Day 1 – Time

One day
over my head in diapers
One day
a young adult
greet me instead.

Jumping in his car
with girlfriend in tow
“Where to”?
they say
“We have plenty of time”.

Today is never ending
in bed by 3 AM
or not
could be rolling
into another day.

A whole life
ahead of them
until
a friend passes
unexpectedly.

Those who remain
will they catch on
that time
is not forever
in their favour?
