Time continues

Time never stops.
It cannot return.
Time does not wait.
Ticktock! It continues.

Always not enough time.
Of retirement projects.
Sitting on the shelf, waiting.
In a jiffy days turn into months.

I cannot find the time.
Neither the excuses.
I tell myself I have time.
After I retire… I said.

I miss my days of youth.
Time has stolen my energy.
Where once I was super fast.
Super fast now takes two days.

Time moves the same.
It’s speed is a constant.
It is I who has slowed.
I, who need more time.

Yet, time continues.
As always, it never stops.
No point in regrets.
Yet I do, for time lost.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
