No time.

No time, you say

To talk on the phone for hours on end

Like we used to.

No time, you say

To write a reply to my note,

Not even a quick "How are you."

No time, no time at all

For goofing around and laughing

Like we did before.

No time for us now,

Not even time to type out an email,

Or say hello,

Or give a quick hug.

But tell me,

What will happen

When there is no time left

At all?
