Poems about Time: There are so many poems on time. Many of them are so beautiful and eloquent. Poets are able to express in a few words the essence of time and what it means to our lives. Here is one poem that I particularly liked:

God’s time by Olufunmbi Aransiola

I knelt to pray but not for long,
I had too much to do.
I had to hurry and get to work
For bills would soon be due.
So I knelt and said a hurried prayer,
and jumped up off my knees.
My Christian duty was now done,
My soul could rest at ease…..
All day long, I had no time
To spread a word of cheer
No time to speak of Christ to friends,
They’d laugh at me I’d fear.
No time, no time, too much to do,
That was my constant cry,
No time to give to souls in need
But at last the time, the time to die.
I went before the Lord,
I came, I stood with downcast eyes.
For in his hands God! held a book;
It was the book of life.
God looked into his book and said
“Your name I cannot find
I once was going to write it down…
But never found the time.”
