Last Days

Life isn't about the destination. But the journey that gets us there.

Bygone the days that have long passed
Yet tomorrow will come
Purple flowers withered and fade
In the heart of a morning sun.


Birds fly the endless sky
And winter is fast approaching
Days has swiftly fly by
And so my life.


Like the leaves of a tree
Softly it falls
Every time the rain strikes
And rests upon the ground.

Life is a continuum. I have to agree that the time seems to be speeding up as I get older but just like the leaves who fall to the ground, they eventually enrich the earth for more fresh life to spring up again. A new dawn awaits whether in this life or the next. Enjoyed your poem. Voted up!

I enjoy beginning my day reading your latest hub. I agree with Snowdrops, this is sad and yet it is beautiful. Sadness can have a beautiful melancholy nature to it and that is what I am reminded of reading this poem.

Lovely work my talented young friend. Have a wonderful weekend.

I found this poem to be sweetly forlorn. But, as is true with nature, with one passing comes a new life;

"Like the leaves of a tree

Softly it falls

Every time the rain strikes

And rests upon the ground."

The falling leaves and rain nourish the ground where the seeds of the next generation surely wait.

Beautiful, voted up and more. :)

@ Snowie, Peggy, Billy, Angela, Chrstin.. I thank you all so much.

I've written this poem a long time ago while watching my grandma on her chair, getting weaker everyday...I asked God to give her my half life so we could still be together. though i know its impossible.

TToombs008, thank you for the message and for the votes. surely, the leaves had to fall so that another leaf had to sprout in its place.
