Time is a test

Time is a test,
with which we must do our best,

a pendulum swing,
the most valuable thing,

time as we know it only rolls on,
one day we will ask,
where has it all gone,

I hope and pray,
that with each day,

that we can say,
we have done,
all that we could,
with what we have been given,

time is a test,
so don't over rest,

do what you can,
to help what you may,

and let not others say,
that it was wasted away,

set your own pace,
as all do finish the race,

let us be driven,
and all forgiven,
