Time crawls on its belly
through mazes of grieving;
slips silent as shadows in
the daze of their leaving.
~ ~ ~
Years row their slow way across
seas of bereaving;
while loss after loss confirms
there’s no retrieving.
~ ~ ~
For time that is vanished can
know no believing;
though sifting through life -
wisdom’s slowly achieving.



 ...Living is ever like crossing rivers; finding a new life on each shore ... RJG

Good morning, my friend.
As per your usual course of excellence ...
this one is no exception.

Rosemary, I know the passage of time hurts when counting loss,  but I can see the wisdom it has given to you, my friend, in your poetry.  Love and hugs to you!
