NORTHWEST SENIORS: Wishing for access to more time

No Time

If only I had more time,

I would stop and listen to you.

If only I had more time,

I might try something new.

If only I had more time,

I might return your smile.

If the day had more hours,

I might get everything done.

And then I could take some time

To enjoy some hard-earned fun.

I hope I have some time

To spend before I die

To figure where my years went

And why I want to cry.

But no time now for tears

Nor any time for prayers,

No time to calm my fears

No time, no time, no time!
