The Sands Of Time Poem by Margaret O Driscoll

The Sands Of Time

Rating: 4.8


The sands of time eroded that
broad smile from your face but
of that carefree ebullient character
I still can see some trace

The sands of time were crushing -
though submerged, you didn't sink
With faith and love as anchors
you're more buoyant than you think

'though submerged, you didn't sink' - this line speaks of his/her character. Sands of time erode our shores; faith and love are the essential ingredients for survival. A nice poem, with a good message.
