Poem: "Fate's Destiny"

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poems Summary

Fate's Destiny is about how quickly life as we know it can change. We wish we could spin the hands of time backwards to get a second chance. Wanting one brief moment to embrace the ones we love to heal the emptiness hiding deep within our soul.

"In The Arms Of An Angel" by Sarah McLachlan

" Fate's Destiny "

In the twinkling of an eye
moments shatter,
days we remember
left sitting in a picture.

Helplessly, we wish
to spin the hands of time backwards,
for a second chance
to change fate’s destiny.

To have one brief moment
to embrace the ones we love,
healing the emptiness
left hiding deep within our soul.

"I'd Come For You" by Nickelback

Amani,

I think we all wish we could change things but live your life in the moment now.

One does not know what cards he will be dealt in life.

Amani Utembu from Nairobi -Kenya on August 23, 2020:

Lora,

Making the most of the time one has left is the most important.

No one knows what tomorrow might bring.

Glad you could feel this one.

Have a great day.

Lora Hollings on August 20, 2020:

I think that most of us wish that we could spin the hands of time backwards to a time of greater innocence or more awareness of how quickly time passes with those that we have loved and lost. Your poignant poem certainly conveys these themes of going back in time to relive these beautiful moments. We can't change the past but we can learn from it and make the most of the time that we have left. Wonderful write!

You capture the scene very well in your vivid poetry. It's one that sadly we will all experience at some time in our lives.

Milly Light on August 15, 2020:

I love how the poem is written. It shows the author's heart and passion in the message portrayed. I can feel the emptiness and sadness while reading in between the lines.

I love how the poem starts with the phrase "in the twinkling of an eye".

Rosina S Khan on August 15, 2020:

Great poem about embracing our loved ones in times of uncertainty and predicament. Great song too, "In the arms of an angel". Thanks for sharing.

That's a lovely poem, Brenda. I love the song 'In the arms of an angel' too. Great choice!

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on August 14, 2020:

You picked my all-time favorite song.

I wonder if there really is such a thing as fate? I'm not saying there is, or isn't. Just wondering. :)

Lorna Lamon on August 14, 2020:

Such touching words and I love your choice of song "In the arms of an angel". We have all had these feelings of loss and regret, however, those special memories we make are the ones that sustain us. It's good to see you Brenda.

Ann Carr from SW England on August 14, 2020:

How many of us feel just like that, I wonder? I certainly do.

We just have to hold our memories close and dear.

Poignant poetry.

Brenda, good to see a new poem by you. Yes, things can change in an instant So we need to constantly tell those close to us that we love them. “In the Arms of an Angel” by Sarah McLachlan Is a classic.
