Time leads on and things decay.
A the same ‘time’ seasons begin and end. The day begins and ends.
Life begins and ends.

We are born, and with the breath…
We die, and the breath leaves us.

Is there a time before life?
Is there a time after death?

Time continues for those still living…but for them it will end too.
Is it an end, or another beginning?

This debate spawned a thousand religions, with all their judgements, calendars and heavenly (otherworld) delights.
