Strength in Time

Strength in Time

A Poem by Wolfwind
"

Patience becomes a virtue as one's voice grows

"

Forever in the forests of time I shall be near

Your steps and journey will I watch

 From a distance

Till the day comes that I hear your call.

Never forget the footprints

Woven in the Wilds of the past

Those pathways had meaning

A bond and a bridge out of stone made solid.

 

Let not the fears of distance worry

Our spirits are tied together in the night sky

The stars to carry our shared thoughts

Wherever, whenever and at any time.

Strong, shall I remain

For you are sun that fills the soul

Even if no words pass through the wind

I shall keep the light of our time, a beacon.

 

In the dawn’s awareness

Become the solution of your own salvation

Your voice will become the equality within

The future built of solid ground.

 Be mindful of the sand that sinks before you

Let not its ill whispers gain strength

For you are the voice of you

May you always hear your song over any other.

Great self talk here!

I like the last staza's dealing with "sand" as it is associated with time, complexities, fouling things up etc... Kind of like the beach being fun and beautiful, but it gets sand all over and stuck in everything as well. Time is much like this...

Thank you! I appreciate your time to come and read my poem! =)
This poem is beautiful, enthralling and enchanting - your delicate wording is sublime and the imagery used is so imaginative and romantic. The metaphorical implications are simply stunning, and the piece as a whole is a joy to read. This is by far one of the most beautiful pieces of poetry I have stumbled across on this site - the topic of the poem is so very intircately beautiful, as captured so perfectly by your writing.

JESUS CHRIST! 17 PAGES OF WORK?! You write quite a bit, my friend...

Ahh, now onto this wonderful poem... Well, the first stanza is certainly very potent... Good for poetry. Okay, you'll always be here, watching. Making sure it all works out. Until this person you're watching is ready, you'll be there. And you won't forget the path you took to get there, because who knows when you'll need to get back out... How you got there certainly means something, and maybe you'll need to site it for a report, so mark the page... Wow, did I just say that? I should really focus less on English homework... Ah, this bridge. Love, trust, friendship, happiness, compassion, AWESOMENESS. That's the stones that build the pretty little bridge that you cross on your metaphor path through the past. Coolness.

The next one says, don't you worry about how we'll get there, or how long it will take... Heh, that kinda contradicts the first one, eh? :) You're forever linked to this... person... that you're watching, and you share a special bond. Awww... And you're holding the light. How sweet.

This third one seems to gently whisper, follow yourself, and help yourself to fortune, and one day your voice will shine brightly, your true self... Don't let people bring you down, but listen to yourself. What a beautiful message!

Heh, this is quite a poem. It's very full and beautiful. :) Of course, you don't need me to tell you that...

Lol!!! :D Haha, awesome. :) Thanks, and you're welcome. Muchly. :)
The title is what drew me in. Time is a concept I find utterly fascinating, because it's something with a solid definition, and yet so many people have so many different grasps on it.

I love that you capitalized Wilds in the first stanza. It made it seem more important. And the way you likened a personal song to individuality (at least that's how I read it), it was a nice concept. I've used this analogy before. It's a good one.

Wow... I loved the sense of peace and serenity within this. Speaking of whispers in the wind and nature and spirits it has that indian quality to it. Beautiful.
