It’s about Time

by Angela Umphers Rueger

How could you?
How could you treat me so badly?
You abused me.
Misused me.
Took advantage of me.

And yet I was there for you.
I was there
For you to hold.
For you to love.
Whatever you needed.

I was there
But now I am gone—
I could not wait.
I am Time,
And your time is up.
