Time

Time

The time I met you was the most important time of my life.

The times we spent together were the best times of my life.

You know how they say time heals all wounds?

It was you they were talking about.

The time I lost our baby

You said another time would come

And then we lost the second one

And you said the time was not yet right

This last time I left, I knew I broke you in pieces

And I swear to you, I wish this time could be different

But you said God makes all things beautiful in His time

And that time – God knows it still hasn’t come

I wish I had time, to stay, to explain, to make you understand

But you know my problem with time.

It never waits.

It never comes at the right time.

It always runs out.

  9. when i grow up, i want to be like you…a fantastic writer!!! ;)

  10. Well, I guess I took out the TIME to read this, Rosie. At first, I thought you were re-emphasising Ecclesiates 3:1-8, but then I saw the little story behind this little poem. There’s a slight uniqueness here, though it still sounds ordinary to me. I guess we can’t do without a little romance, now can we, hm? :) Hmm, already someone is calling you (*whispers*) ‘a fantastic writer’. You can just re-glance this poem again if you want it to be TIMELESS. Em, do you have a garden, hm? If so, can I plant a ‘Rose’ there, Rosie dear? This is to show that you can and should and must build up on your ‘love for writing’, no matter the age you are. Keep reading and keep writing. You’re young… ;) I hope you also love to read as well, hm?

    @Kiah, “when i grow up…”??? Geez, you’re not ‘grown up’ yet, uh?? Problem dey, o! *JOKE*

  12. @kiah, when you grow up, please be better than she is @rosie, if scopeman and emmanuella can say thumbs-up, you have done a nice job then.

  13. Smooth and silky, like a lover’s caress…just before she leaves U with an unfillable void…I’m not much of a poetry guy, but I gotta say, this is nice Rosie…real nice…I can hear the whispers in the breeze…
