Where did the time go

When we’re born
Things are slow
A time to listen
To those who know

As we grow up
We open our eyes
We start to walk
And break the ties

In our teens
The pace speeds up
We make preparations
For the adult jump

Twenties fly past
Before we know
Getting a family
And morgage in tow

In our thirties
No time to stop
So much to do
To get to the top

Forties come
Ever so fast
Time to slow down
Don’t want to go past

Fifties roll in
But things keep going
We accept it now
Looking all knowing

Sixty knocks
And we want to know
What happened in our lives
Where did the time go
