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.

I remember the time I had written a poem about time, truthfully, it hasn't come even near as good as yours...
And what you talk about time is really true, something everyone understands yet penned effectively, giving the required meaning;-)

Nice! I really like your meter and rhymes. My only suggestion would be to change up some of your words to give it a bit more variety. For example, you use the word "fly" a few times - substituting it with another word or image might liven up your poem. Again, nice work and happy writing! :)

Indeed...Time flies away

It's a poem about remembrance, about marking the passing of time, as it passes. The wise and practical poet suggests an attitude to loss while acknowledging that nothing can be done about it.
