time in a bottle

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
