Poem - Once

The poem “Once” is about the changes that time imposes on people.


Lines carved by tears
etched over the years
on a surface once smooth.

Snow fallen on high
masking the dark tones
of a mantle once full.

Windows that have seen
curtains could not hide
the eyes once blind.

Crooked and bent lines
a form now broken
on a frame once firm.

Time has taken its due
asked a price for the ride
on a life once without end.
