They Say That 'Time Assuages,

They say that 'time assuages,'--
Time never did assuage;
An actual suffering strengthens,
As sinews do, with age.

Time is a test of trouble,
But not a remedy.
If such it prove, it prove too
There was no malady.

I do agree with your view on Time Emily...very true... sometimes some proverbs and sayings don't hold the truth...I mean about Time alone can heal..- -great poem 10+++++++++++++++
.............time the mystery of mysteries ★
Simple yet profound......that's why Emily is unique in her own style and great with her unique mind
Simple and poignant. I wish I could write something like this. I'm sure I'll try.
