To The Young - Poem by Sean Godley

Your laughs will fade to smiles you’ll have to force,
When life has scarred you with its whipping ways,
Then, for these guilt-free days, you’ll have remorse.

When the trials of youth have run their course,
And you know the nature of future days,
Your laughs will fade to smiles you’ll have to force.

When it’s love from which you force divorce,
To cease the searing from the heart-aches blaze,
Then, for these guilt-free days, you’ll have remorse.

When nature’s sung her brutalising discourse,
And your appeals do little more than graze,
Your laughs will fade to smiles you’ll have to force.

When soft memories have become coarse,
Because they bruise the hardness of today’s,
Then, for these guilt-free days, you’ll have remorse.

When the hours furthermore enforce
That youth’s minute oh-so-quickly plays,
Your laughs will fade to smiles you’ll have to force,
Then, for these guilt-free days, you’ll have remorse.
