Time Keeps on Slippin’

There’s a song that says

“Time keeps on slippin’ (slippin’, slippin’)

into the future

but what if time were stuck

like that ‘Groundhog’ Day movie

in one day, or moment

of time to be lived

over (and over and over)


Consider the types of days

that you’ve lived in the past

To continually re-live the worst

what torture would that be?

But even the best would become

eventually, a drudgery

My calendar pages turn

about once each four weeks (or so)

and I rarely need to look back.

Some days I hate, but better days…

they’re always going to come ’round again

Time…yeah, it keeps on slippin’ (slippin’, slippin’)

into the future.

Thank Goodness!!

  1. steve miller band….nice…i was already singing it at your title….smiles. there are def days i would not like to relive over and over…on those days i am glad that time moves ever forward…

  2. Yes, Bryan, time does keep slipping into the future. Most days I would not want to relive (in Groundhog Day fashion) either; but I wish time would NOT pass quite as quickly as it does. It is good that we always do have ‘better days’ to look forward to.

    • Thanks, Victoria. I’d rather learn from my mistakes one day at a time, though, rather than re-live the same day over and over. thanks for reading!

  3. I’ve had those Groundhog Day days – ugh! So much better to have the calendar move to a different day than the same one over and over. Very well done! (My hubby has said that seeding and harvest can seem like Groundhog Day – ha ha)
