Poem: Youthfulness Fades

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

Youthfulness fades is a poem about feeling the effects of old age creeping upon you. Your youthfulness no longer sparkles. You feel aches with the Winter chill. You experience brain fog, where your thoughts are confused or lost. You remember being young just like it was yesterday .

Youthfulness Fades

Her youthfulness fades,

no longer sparkling

like a fresh coat of snow.


The coldness of Winter's chill

makes her joints creak

like a rusty tin man.


Her enthusiastic smile grows dim,

her thoughts in a constant fog

like the scarecrow without a brain.


Feeling the temperament of old age

creeping into her weary bones,

she remembers yesterday

like she is a young girl.
