Time - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Time pulls hard and fast
Moving me relentlessly forward
Tic tocking away with each passing second.

When I was young
Time was slow and sweet
With long bright days never ending.

But how do I pause the passing days
Pushing me forward with increasing pace
To where I fear to harbour?

    That's time pushing us to fear and to harbour somewhere, the young seconds petrified to the eternal. Lines are simple and true. (Report) Reply
