    Re: lack of time

    The first sentence is OK if you add a comma after "time". It would be better expressed as "Due to a lack of time, I forgot to bring it". Your second sentence is incorrect. If you want to use "short of time", then say something like "I was short of time so I forgot to bring it".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
