Strength Of Time - Poem by Chris Boyles
Upon the ground I saw him sitting alone
through the trees the winds did groan.
There was no sun to brighten his day
sat under a sky of clouds dull and grey.
What troubled him so I do not know
staring into nowhere pain did show.
Upon his face not a smile was seen
seated upon the grass lush and green.
Birds flying against the strong breeze
as I snapped pictures of the trees.
Unsure of the exact time I did ask he
his reply time is just infinity to me.
But numbers on a face with no smile
we are upon this earth for a while.
Why time do worry about each day
for one day it will disappear away.
No time can erase hurt and the pain
I hope you do not think me insane.
The time dear lady passes us all by
as the clouds float across the sky.
I was not sure quite what he meant
though rudeness is not my intent.
We spoke for a while longer there
philosophical thoughts to share.
Alas he had lost the love of his life
his friend and soul mate and wife.
I understood now why he sat alone
as the winds about him did groan.
Part of him gone he cudnt replace
I could read there upon his face.
So hard to be alone and to adjust
a heart aching feeling it will bust.
A hug shared as we said goodbye
now I could see a tear in his eye.
Will he find some find consolation
will his heartache feel restoration.
A picture of a big strong oak I took
thinking of he I placed in my book.
I named the picture 'Strength of Time'
and hence you have read the rhyme.
