Time Measured in Decades

Written by: Patriotic Poet 10-14-2021



Time Measured in Decades


Time measured in decades

like a swift river did go by

A few grey hairs and wrinkles

the mirror can make one sigh


Older yet wiser perhaps is true

at least I hope it was achieved

A life well lived with kindness and grace

somehow that is what I believed


Another generation passing with time

the stuff made of legends stands true

The torch has been past, it is time

fade in the sky when it’s blue


Be not sad for I am with you always

love never dies, just newly formed

Bonded by memories evermore

your heart will always be warmed
