The Hourglass

Like the hourglass-time moves slowly. Down to the end. Time is your friend, you have lived and loved and been hurt and hurt others, enough for a lifetime.
My time is not the hourglass. My hourglass has all the sand from the ocean. Too much to put into a time peace. Time for me are lessons to be learned. Pain, love, longing for more. My heart has been broken since I was a little girl. Year by year, trying to fill the crack. Many loves.
Time is endless. I can not see far into the future where like you, honesty and peace come gracefully now. The time spent with you is precious to me. Every piece of sand a raw emotion. Like the tiny salt in my tears. Never wanting this to end.And my heart. Still the crack. the sand of your life and our short time together tries to fill the crack. But as always the tears seep in and wash the truth away. I will be here with your hourglass waiting and loving every time we are together. Your life fulfilled. Mine empty. Never forgetting and always longing for more time. Catherine

I love your poem, but I would rewrite it like this. Thanks for posting. wj Like the hourglass, time moves slowly, down to the end. Time is your friend; you have lived and loved, been hurt and hurt others, enough for a lifetime. My time is not the hourglass. My hourglass has all the sand from the ocean, too much to put into a time piece. Time for me means lessons to be learned. Pain, love, longing for more. My heart has been broken since I was a little girl, year by year, trying to fill the crack with many loves. Time is endless. I can not see far into the future where like you, honesty and peace come gracefully now. The time spent with you is precious to me- every piece of sand- a raw emotion- the tiny salt in my tears. Never wanting this to end, my heart still contains a crack. The sand of your life and our short time together tries to fill it. But, as always, the tears seep in wash the truth away. I will be here with your hourglass waiting and loving every time we are together. Your life fulfilled, mine empty & never forgetting - always longing for more time. Catherine Pool
