Time

Time

A Poem by Jonathan Bryant Dean

As Time goes by we know, we’ve less left know than when we first begun.
Time goes so slowly when we are young, but now it flies away.

As time goes by we learn, best years of our life are the ones to come.
As children we are so immortal, the facts of life didn’t get in the way.

So now that we have aged, let us still retain a touch of immortality,
With what have learned, imagine what dreams we can attain today,

Remember today as you go, for if time flies now at our middle age,
Time still will seem so slow, as it flies away, it will still fly away.

Time seems to give one a perspective that everything comes to an end
In a way time is wise within itself
The only true teacher

Changing everything without permission
We learn whether we want to or not

This is so true of time. It has a way in speeding up; especially when watching kids grow.
A good write. Welcome to the café.

There is so much ower in the small amount of words. I am jealous of your ability to touch someones heart and leave them wanting more. I'm definitely going to go read more of your work. Thank you for sharing your poem.

Hi I really liked the way this was laid out, The way the young and the old is mixed together, Time goes so slowly when we are young but now it flies being an example. Clever work sir. Time has so much influence over us these days we are all rushing trying squeeze 25 hours in to a day but Time is the most valubale thing we can give someone whether they be old or young and i think that comes across in your peice.
