One Single Impression: Melody


Daylight waning,
Shadows falling.
Moon is rising,
Night winds calling.

Time drifts by
On silken wings,
Far and low
A song it sings.

It sings of love
And letters sent,
It sings of loss
And years misspent.

It sings of birth
As life begins,
It mourns as death,
Our journey ends.

It sings the melody
Of our lives
And sometimes makes us
Wonder why

We didn’t, when we
Had the chance,
Change the notes,
The refrain perhaps.

The past is gone,
It can’t be changed;
Look forward now
With knowledge gained.

Listen close in the
Hushed, still night
To the song of time
On its endless flight.

    I love the idea of life as a melody and that there is a possibility that we can change the notes. Very well done!

    You know I love that photograph! Change the notes sticks with me, too. Actually, the whole will stay with me.

    Harmonious harmonies in harmony with life!
    God has given you a great gift.
    Beauty without and beauty within.

    This reads very well. The hardest message in life is you can’t change the past. We can however, prepare for the future, using the past to guide us. It’s like hearing a new song for the first time. Ponder! This is a wonderful poem!
