Time in a Bottle

Catching time

Containing it in a bottle

Saving it for later

But time has an expiration date

It starts today

And goes down past tomorrow

That bottle is open ended

Time will flow out

And it will stay in

The bottle will age

The glass will change

And time will not be truly caught

It cannot be saved for later

It must be used immediately

Or the effects will fade

That time will pass

And it will not come back

For that is time

And it’s uses and properties

May vary as time passes

Passing by you

The bottle

And all that is

Going on to what isn’t

Leaving that bottle and you

As it journey’s onto the future
