What do you think of this poem?

This time, it seems we have so little

The clock ticks by

And the moments fly

This time is so precious

Yet we let it slip away

We fritter away seconds which will never be regained

I yearn to hold a single moment

And hold it close, hold it tight

But somehow it still slips by

For time is an ever changing flow

And we must not dwell on the past

But treat each day as though it's our last

    I like it! It is truth.  I believe stating: "Time, its seems we have so little", would sound better than "this time". Same idea for second verse first line.

    The two last lines in the first and forth stanzas are as AA, while the other lines as free verse.
