Value of Time – One of my fav poems of all time

This is one of my favorite poems of all time. I have no clue of who wrote or when. If you do, please share the info.

Value of time

To realize the value of one year:
Ask a student who has failed a final exam.

To realize the value of one month:
Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one hour:
Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute:
Ask the person who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize the value of one-second:
Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of one millisecond:
Ask the person who has won a silver medal in the Olympics.

  1. Unfortunately ,most of the time in our life we only keep realizing about what had to be done,what should not have been done.

    We realize the value of everything only the next sec,next min,next hour,next….

  2. Very true. But the smart ones learn from past mistakes. Don’t they? :) I guess its not even about smartness. It’s about common sense and conscious effort not to repeat the same mistakes.
