when the bell rings

Waiting for the bell
to ring, for him
no man knows
when, it will
call, without
warning, that time,
has run,
out of waiting
for the bell,
to ring.

In between
each ring, life
ripples out, in waves
of love and joy
sorrow and laughter
appealing, to time, to give
him another moment
to live not
knowing, when,
the bell rings
he will,
