Competition Entry: Dream On

You may think me a friend
From the moment I started
But my wonderful gift
You just took for granted

You wish me away
At times of great sorrow
Put off from today
The things for tomorrow

With each passing moment
The stronger I get
Only when I’m gone
Do you start to regret

I move past so quickly
I’m here and then gone
One moment in time
That doesn’t last long 

You look back in anger
You start to lament
All the time that you stole
Has all now been spent 

All the seconds you wasted
The minutes and hours
The time lost in shelter
Afraid of the showers 

And now left to ponder
How much you would pay
To get back one year
Or even a day 

As I said at the start
I have to stay firm
You gave it up freely
It will never return 

You may dream or imagine
Try to make peace
But times arrow moves forward
Never to cease
