Theft of Time

Like a thief in the night who robs you blind, Time steals away your youth, leaving old age behind. © 08-25-2012 Time Couplet Contest

    Hi Tanya - So true, but I like to think that while time steals our youth, wisdom is the gift that is left behind. Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking couplet. Also, thanks for your kind comment about my poem. - Gail

    No two ways about it. But consider the alternative. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Hey, what happened to time? Have you seen it? Ha ha! You have written a brilliant write about time and how it speeds by you as fast as can be! We do seem to lose our youth before we even know it...then we get old, Yikes! This is a fantastic and a remarkable poem! Great Work!!
