Time waits for no mouse..


Time is not always a friend.
He rushes by,
in a hurry.
He takes away my breath,
and causes me to pause,
in my labors,
and wonder at,
the changes I have missed,
while blinking.

He is not kind,
but he is not,
without a purpose.
He reminds us,
that we have dreams to chase,
that we cannot wait,
for that free day to come,
cause free days never do,
and in the end,
we either make our chances,
or miss our life,
completely.

what dream will you find today?
what hope will you reach for?
what would you do with life
if you had only this one day
to do it?

  1. A beautiful poem and thought provoking query by Bekki Bedow. It was my good fortune to discover ‘Time waits for no mouse…’ as I was looking up Michael Hoeye’s book, “Time Stops for No Mouse”.

    Is the formatting and capitalization true to the author’s original?

    1. I am Bekki Bedow so I am pretty sure the grammar and capitalization needs work. Time Stops for N o Mouse, is my favorite Michael Hoeye’s book. I have the entire collection of his work that I got as a present for my birthday last year. Actually I have been meaning to correct this poem since it was written when I had less understanding that poems did not need a comma at the end of each sentence. LOL. I wrote a small story on this blog that is kind of my own version of Hermux style writing, all in fun and love of Michael Hoeye.
