    Welcome to the forum, sannyfeb85.

    We like to help when we can, but a dictionary is usually the best place to find the meaning of words.

    sometime - definition. American English definition of sometime by Macmillan Dictionary
    sometimes - definition. American English definition of sometimes by Macmillan Dictionary

    The adverb sometime (one word) means "at an indefinite or unstated time in the future." The phrase some time (two words) means "a period of time." The adverb sometimes (one word) means "occasionally, now and then."

    I just got that from the net.
