The Passage of Time

tea

Glancing through the pages

denying the passage of time

each page tells a story

of life stories on a dime

 

Stories of first love

of excitement and sweet

stretching from happiness

making my knees weak

 

Entries of heartbreak

trying and full of tears

thinking that time had stopped

not the passing of the years

 

Stories of growth

changes far and wide

the world so big

with loved ones by my side

 

Newer entries

in denial of time past

old adventures revisited

happiness to last

 

The book is growing

with the passage of time

a life well lived

sharing love of mine

  1. Great poem, Debbie! What a truth, we all have our moments. In the end, we are thankful for the good and the seems not so good. There’s a reason for the season.

  2. I really liked this stanza in particular: Newer entries/ in denial of time past / old adventures revisited / happiness to last

    I think it is so interesting that a memory changes a bit with each remembrance – I guess because it is framed with more and more other memories each time.

  3. It is amazing what we teach ourselves if we just listen. There is so much healing, laughter, and simple understanding of who we are when we write it down.
