Time - Poem by Philip Vincent Sanders

My life is full of words
To relish and to feel
My head is so emotional
That senses swim and reel

I light life’s candle hopefully
Amidst the heaving world
I watch and wait expectantly
As time torments and swirls

Inside the whirling torrents
Of heart and thought and deed
A moment’s pure simplicity
Is planted as a seed

This moment could become the norm
If I just still my pen
And let such peace and gentleness
Inside my head again

I see lost loves and chances
Like a vortex spinning round
I cry out loud to heed them
But I utter not a sound

For time is master of us all
It takes away the past
And leaves us with the future
A chance again at last?

The pictures of our history
Are blended deep inside
We’re better if we face them
No point to weave and hide

So learn from moments lost before
Enrich your future life
Engage the gear of possible
And drive away from strife
