Time - Poem by Valerie Dohren

Bang …..

Tick, tock, tick tock,

seconds
minutes
hours

days pass

seasons turn

years
portions of existence

melt
into eternity

    How very short and simple! Just as time flies by, you
    captured it right here in these words! Isn't it funny how
    when we are young, time seems to take forever, yet as
    we age it just flies by! In the blink of an eye! Loved this! (Report) Reply

    The meaning of life summed up in a short poem Hawkins wrote a huge book and the majority of us still are none the wiser! BANG, tick tock, seasons turn, eternity, and that's it. Brilliant Val. (Report) Reply

    That's the only thing we cannot stop, time. It comes and it goes, it goes.

    Beautiful.
