I speak softer, every year a little softer.
Perhaps.

Slower too, every year a little slower.
Perhaps.

It is hard for me to judge.

If so the pauses would be longer, between the words, the sentences, the syllables, the tears, I confuse them, words and tears, my words are my tears, my eyes my mouth.

And I should hear, at every little pause, if it's the silence I say when I say that only the words break it. But nothing of the kind, that's not how it is ...

Samuel Beckett

Have you not done tormenting me with your accursed time! It's abominable! When! When! One day, is that not enough for you, one day he went dumb, one day I went blind, one day we'll go deaf, one day we were born, one day we shall die, the same day, the same second, is that not enough for you? They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more.

Act I - Waiting for Godot

Time truly is relative. Who doesn't understand the need for a reference point when you're sat in a train and unsure whether its you or thr tain you're watching that's moving?
