Before all colors turn and fade,
And all the joys of youth have died;
Before age turns our green to brown,
Promise me you’ll be around

Before all feelings felt are lost,
And darkness snuffs the lamp of life;
Before time turns our bones to dust,
Promise me I’ll have your trust

Before death buries all our thoughts,
And fate has ground our graves to sand;
Before God calls our souls to part,
Promise me I’ll be your friend.

    Thank you for sharing your heart with us through your poetry here at PoetrySoup Nick. My time for reading and commenting will be short until after the New Year. So, today I send a wish from my house to yours. Have a Joyous Holiday and a Happy New Year. Please remember the sick and hungry in your prayers daily. Do all you can to help in anyway you can. Love and blessing, Carol and Family (Your smile can warm a heart)

    Hi Nick.This is really lovely.Although I love all of it, some of your lines stand out.They are unique and quite beautiful.It's easy to read and has a soft gentle flow.And like the appeal in your words it has its' own appeal to me.Thank you.It gave me so much pleasure reading it I would like to make it one of my favourites.Love June(Sylvia)
