She never sleeps

She never sleeps
there isn’t time
life is too full
and she mustn’t miss a second

She never stops
too much to do
too many people
she cannot waste a moment

Diving into life
all of life
nothing left to chance
nothing missed
always busy
she never sleeps

The clock is her enemy
always chasing time
nothing else she can do
friends to see
new places to be
she never stops

The pity is
she was too busy to see
and missed him
