Oh How Life.! ......... - Poem by Not Long Left

oh how time can change a man,
like water does to whiskey,
i have mellowed,
and become more drinkable.

oh how love can change a man,
like sandpaper to rough wood,
i have become smooth,
and more touchable.

oh how words can change a man,
like a childs high rise tower of building blocks,
i have reached heights i never thought i could.

oh how death can change a man,
like an oracle's cruel revelation,
i challenge fate on every corner.

oh how life can enrich a man,
like a candy bar of every flavour,
for now time is something to savour,
oh how life can span a minute,
or 100 years, before one can live it
but for me...
i am merely a fresh budding flower!

    Love comes and goes and does inspire
    Most poets to reach even higher
    As with your muse, I must conceed
    you are a poet of rarer breed.
    Regards Graham.
