Best Elly D. A. Wouterse Poems

+ Fav Poet


smiles vanish some of the years gone by
tears rinse a few heaps of sadness
words can solve or teach when heard 
memories can unite 
the old and the young

age growing rapidly as the years
proud hearted of facial laugh lines
memories decoloring
first of wisdom's grey hair
essences of life
soften the heart
living souls
