Time Poem by Alison Gaff


Rating: 4.9

Its like the worlds stopped turning
Without you by my side
But then I look and wonder
At the changing countryside
The bright colours of the Summer
Give way to Autumns bronze and gold
The skies turn dark and miserable
And I wish I had you're hand to hold
But then a rainbow lights the sky
And brightens up the day
I'm sure you're watching over me
And you're never far away

Losing one near and dear is a tragic experience and the thought of the beloved person resurfaces during both on happy and sombre occassions. This aspect has been encapsuled beautifully in this Beautifully poem.
