Time’s Gift – Poem about Time Passing By

Time's Gift: Poem about Time Passing ByA Reflective Poem about Life Lessons, Learning from our Mistakes and Time Passing By

Time’s Gift

Time heals
Promising closure
Shrinking scars like popping bubbles
As it prepares our gift
Times benefaction is objectivity to our past
Building an awareness of yesteryears
Defogging our vision for truth
Generously donating our package of clarity

Time lies only to those
who misuse its precious moments,
Lines entrenched on our face
can devour redeemable blemishes
By gracefully accepting our package
healing eyes can widen to witness dissipating mist

Time promises blessed tomorrows
Let us put away our spinning wheels
plunge forward with our lesson
accept our bequest from Time, and yes!
We will have morning smiles

Poem about Time Passing: This poem has quite a history…When I was about 17 years old, on my way by train to visit a friend, I wrote a poem called, “Time Heals All Wounds”.  There wasn’t anything going on negatively in my life at the time,  I just remember feeling reflective about how time was passing by, and how time changes so much. Well today, at this time in my life, over 20 years later, I was re-reading this poem…and I felt compelled to modify it. I added a theme that I learned only by growing older (or should I say “maturing”). That is, that of course, yes, everything changes as time goes by, but more importantly it’s our life lessons that we absorb from time..or in some cases, don’t absorb, at which point we are left spinning our wheels and repeating the same mistakes. So this poem is my maturing lesson of “Times Gift”..(lets hope)
