Poem: Oldness of Time

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

Poem Summary

"Oldness of Time" is a poem that describes how a couple grows together over the years.

They become part of each others life with a love that is strong.

As life counts down, one has to face the reality of losing one another.

He tries to make the most out of each moment. Hoping to control destiny, so they discover more dreams before their time slips away.

Oldness Of Time

Oldness of time
molds them together,
each day a new moment to cherish
making memories to last a lifetime.

The seasons change them
over the years,
but the feeling of love
lingers deep inside their hearts
growing stronger each day.

Tears of despair
wakes her one day,
uprooting their sanctuary,
crumbling like a brick wall,
knowing she will be left behind.

Her mind in turmoil
fearing the imminent loss,
watching the clock silently count down
trying to control destiny,
making the most
of each moment,
discovering dreams
before they slip away.


Love is how you stay alive, even after you are gone.

— Mitch Albom
