Dim The Eye - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

Dim the eye and worn the heart
dear ones waiting to depart
loneliness looms up ahead
childhood's dreams have long since fled

Just a tiny spark still clings
fanned by tiny angel wings
fragments of a youth long lost
oh what price and oh the cost

Tears bring back those poppy fields
through the fog of mem'ry's yields
somewhere hidden in the soul
tuffets, muffets, rabbit holes

Age has doused too many flames
no more time to play those games
time to sit and watch the play
time to count just one more day

Dim the eye and worn the heart
dear ones waiting to depart
loneliness looms up ahead
childhood's dreams have long since fled.

Topic(s) of this poem: flowers, old age , old memory, youth
