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.

Poem Summary

There is still time is a poem about how sometimes after a couple are together for awhile there are words spoken or moments which seem harsh causing one's love to diminish. It can be saved if one puts forth a little effort showing love embracing it with kindness. There is time if love exists.

There Is Still Time

Like the tide of the ocean,
his uncaring attitude
fills with ungrateful words,
causing her love to recede.

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

Tender care,
feeding necessary nutrients of love,
can sustain its' livelihood,
producing vibrant new blossoms
if offered with genuine kindness.
