Time?

Is something we measure as it goes by but hard to measure in it's future, It is damn hard to manage it or save it but very easy to spend, waste or kill it.
Some people have a hundred years of time others only 29 years of it and as far as myself , I wasted 46 . 7 years of it.
My friend's son had past yesterday at 29 , some say his time was up , his time on this planet was short or time waits for no man.
They say Time heals all wounds ?
How does that happen when we don't have time?
They say we have the past, present and future?
In time we always have the past, there is no present and in a split second the future is now the past and how far in the future can one go on borrowed time?
My friend, time
was short for you, you left a beautiful wife and 4 beautiful children.
May time be generous to those that you left behind!
Good bye Russel.
And as always , thanks for listening!

John,

I am really very sorry to hear about the loss of your friend's son; twenty nine is so young. I will keep you and his family in my prayers tonight.
Take care

'Borrowed Time' ~ John Lennon
When I was younger
Living confusion and deep dispair
When I was younger ah hah
Living illusion of freedom and power

When I was younger
Full of ideas and broken dreams (my friend)
When I was younger ah hah
Everything simple but not so clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow
Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Now I am older
The more that I see the less that I know for sure
Now I am older ah hah
The future is brighter and now is the hour

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow
Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

Good to be older
Would not exchange a single day or a year
Good to be older ah hah
Less complications everything clear

Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow
Living on borrowed time
Without a thought for tomorrow

I used to wonder what time was. I had a hard time finding just one word that completely described what it was. Time is elusive, gone in a wisp of the wind, constantly moving and always just out of reach. You can't see it, just feel it after it has passed. It arrives without warning and leaves, taking with it what it wants. Occasionally it takes that which we are not ready to release. Does it heal the heart and soul? No, it just allows you to become accustomed to the pain and vacancy. The word I found to describe 'time' best was 'is'. Time is... so spend it well because it doesn't not last forever. The only time that is guaranteed is each second as it happens. You are because time is...
So sorry to hear about your friend's son. I could not imagine losing a child of mind. My heart would surely break into a million pieces. 29... not a long time at all.
