Poem: There Is Still Time

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

"Broken Together" by Casting Crowns

poem-there-is-still-time

Like the tide of the ocean,
your uncaring attitude
filled with ungrateful words
has caused my love to recede.

My heart once full of enthusiasm,
love dancing in the twilight
of each new moment
is withering like new guinea impatiens
on a hot summer day.

Tender care,
feeding nutrients of life,
could sustain its' livelihood,
producing vibrant new blossoms
if offered with love.

"What Hurts the Most" by Rascal Flatts
