The whispers from strangers; that my child is
dying coming from the other room brought anger,
it whirls across the room like a raging storm. Do
they know how very wicked they are, who they
I want to scream, tell them how depraved they are
and that they should leave, seek solace with their own
kind in the pits of “Hell”. The soul you are referring to
is cradled in my arms, I cannot keep her alive, did you
truly try to keep her alive.
Things do not always appear, as they seem you are out
of control. Do you know that my arms will be empty soon?
at this moment you do not even know why, you are just an
uncaring person here outside my circle of love.
Awaken your mind, soon there will be grieving here, run, run,
and hope this will never be you that is treasuring these last
hours of joy. Leave do not show your face here again, until
you know the truth, that…”Time is a thief”.

Thanks for sharing this poem with us. I’ve been having emotions lately that brought your words to life for me…couldn’t of said it better myself, “Time is a thief.”
Yes it is…and a hard lesson to learn to take every moment and cherish it. Ann
Words of wisdom, thank you, I think it’s just what I needed to hear.
Great, I needed to visit all I could with my community today “one of those days”…and meet new members. I am always grateful for comments. Have a wonderful day. Ann
Time has stolen from us all. I mourn the things I’ve lost, but I celebrate what’s left. 🙂
Oh yes my friend…I even celebrate the lost too, for without it I would not be me. My poetry sums me up, it is what lives within and my life shows within those lines whether happiness or sorrow. At one time I thought I had lost my youth, my young adulthood, my life in general; then I found that they were all here within me. I visit with them, they are among the pages of my journal waiting, they are folded within my poetry waiting to be read. Have a great day and thank you for your wonderful comment. Ann
Yes, I like the idea of celebrating what’s lost as well. Thanks for your wonderful response, so thoughtful. Have a terrific, peaceful week. 🙂
Time is a thief, indeed. The only force that none of us escape – a regular crook, stealing seconds like grapes in a supermarket checkout.
Oh Broken Arrow, so good to hear from you and yes you are right…I tried to escape it but when I learn to embrace it I found life to be more worthwhile. Have a wonderful day. Ann
