je n'ai pas le temps


Some people say:

Children don't understand time


School lasts too long

Birthday parties end in a second 

Christmas never comes soon enough


One day we look around to find

we are children no longer


Days that used to drag on forever

race by before our eyes 


weeks vanish, months run by us

gone before we know another one has ended; 

before we have time to pull the page from the calendar


Some people say:

Children do not understand time

Other people say none of us do
