GIFT

A Poem by Neetha
"

Morning Gift

"

Warm rays bathed her

Welcoming her happily

With a gift so necessary

Wrapped with glistening bows.

 

A smile adorned her face

As she sighted the gift

And her heart pounded

As her fingers made way.

 

Slowly she pierced into the world

Secretive and protected

Serene and mystifying

Secured inside coloured wrappers.

 

Wrapped inside wrappers

Was a ‘watch’

Flamboyant with designs &

Filled with ‘Time’.

 

‘Time runs forward

Taking you along or

Trailing you behind

Through your decisions’

 

Thus read the gilded wordings

Alongside the morning Gift.

Author's Note

Neetha
Time is a Gift.
Use it wisely to enjoy the gift to the fullest.
24 Hrs is a gift that everybody receives but only a few uses in the way it ought to be...

Wise words. You don't realise how quickly time passes by until you get older. Time is like water flowing beneath a bridge, once it's gone you can't retrieve it. Your poem was delightful to read.

Thank you Christine.
I am glad to read from you.
A good idea and a lovely poem, Neetha.
Funny isn't it? Time only moves forward and memory only backwards. We deal with both as best we can.
