even time in a bottle
seeps away silently
it was never yours
to begin with
it will never be yours
except for the present moment
and like the genie in a lamp
you can have three wishes
for the time that is in your name
but you can never, ever
return it to the lamp
nor ask for one more wish

Beautiful! And what about the true me who is beyond time and space? Is there hope of another wish?
I would hope that beyond time and space there would be no need for another wish :-)
Yes, absolutely right!
How clever of you Sonya.Time in your name you cannot ever return to the lamp and ask for one more wish.
And one more thing about time is that it is the heaviest when filled with nothing.
Thank you for this poem which brings to us a powerful truth about the time called now.
All good wishes,
“Now” is indeed the only time that exists and therefore “now” is the only truth we know.
