Where Has The Time Gone? - Poem by Brian Routh
Where has the time gone?
Cobwebs in the corner of soul.
I look at this aging lined face in the mirror.
Someone has destroyed this portrait.
No more innocence.
I look at this great ship halfway through its voyage.
I see how neglected it is.
I feel shame.
I have allowed this vessel to decline.
I have put off ‘til tomorrow for too long.
It sinks away into the ocean.
Lost in the darkness.
Sleeping on the ocean bed.
It no longer waits for the bliss of sunlight.
It sleeps too deeply to be conscious of itself.
Now it can only be awakened by the kiss of God.
Until then it will be unconscious of what, who and
where it is.
