Words on Time



The sands of time
Slip away faster
As each new day dawns.
Gone are the days
Of spring and summer –
Full of youthful longing
And excitement at the possibilities
Of what life has in store…
I am entering into
The autumn phase
And wondering what
This next stage might hold…
With friends already gone
And some of life’s
Dreams already missed.
Life still powers forth
And opens continually
Across this wide world…
But at this precise moment
I am feeling ruminative
As my thoughts run by –
I can’t help but wonder
How this story may end…
When the winter time has passed!

  1. Dear Debra,
    @Caroline expressed it best. Very Much Heart-Felt! I believe this Touches many of us that are “middle aged” as the sand appears to pour faster now, than when we are in our youth.
    Your Friend,
