Parting Glass

Time never cease
Change never stops
Rules shall displease
As life we plot

And forever we depart
Forgetting ourselves daily
Once, twice we embrace the dark
Thrice... yet a life barely

Questions, I’m always to find
Many with answers never found
Little by little we exhaust with time
As I watch per life to be bound

That single glass I raise
Parting my lips for perhaps the last
Savoring for once the genuine taste
Yet lasting never for flavors to past

Is there that one more day?
A time to once more be
A someone to never yet stay
A taste, a parting glass from me

    Nice poem Joel. I like the symbolic element that the glass represents in this piece.The meaning is very strong.
