So lovely and so attracting
Doors of excitement awaited for me,
I went there to get in
But two gatekeepers stopped me;
One asked for ticket of time
Other for ticket of money,
With I having only time, no money
I was shown the way out.

Years later I came again
This time with much money,
Elated that I will be in
I met the guards with pride;
I got the entry for money
But failed to get the other,
I came out again sadly
Just because I had no time.

Time passes and years later
I am too old and weak,
To reach even the gate
To relish every happiness;
Lament that it's too late
Even when I have both,
Like every other human
I become prey to life.
