Youth

evermore

our life, time defines it
as love in a dance
with death
we lie still, we are shadows
awaiting, celebrating our love

youth, yes fleeting
like the life we know
but evermore
the loss of solitude
in our houses, along our roads

youth is a seductress
she is beautiful, she makes you believe
nothing can touch you,
not death nor age
then you look in the mirror

evermore

we progress, we change
we remember our past
as the earth, we grow
into our sadness
but she whispers, in our ear

the beauty, always imagining
we love, in youth
our age begins the silence
and it is our fate
youth, yes fleeting

nevermore

this has some class of Poe with the evermore and nevermore but there is much wisdom here. There are a lot of things that are passing. But I think youth is eternal. Yes, looks may say otherwise but the mind is powerful and often what you think is real. Perception is reality but acceptance is the first step to finding wisdom. Excellent write.

Universal truth, Dale. Well expressed wisdom. Thank you. Love and peace. Regis

Love Sue's comment below... perspective is everything and a major key to youth either "staying with you" or "fleeing away", taking time and circumstances with her. Mentally, we can be as old as we feel - but try convincing your body of the same thing! This whole issue is scary, it seems to me... I have never heard of anyone who has, through experience, found that they have, in actual fact, been able to "grow old gracefully". It seems to me that youth stays with us - until overnight she suddenly takes her leave: SHE calls the tune as to when "evermore" turns instead to "nevermore". Thoughtful and beautifully articulated, Dale. Thank you. Kate xx

This is an awesome discription of what time can do to a person. The evermore and nevermore accentuates the feeling of permanence. Very nicely done.

Dale, All my children are in their twenties, and from the time they were teens, I've felt like they believe they are invinceable. It scares me, now that my youth has been gone for many years, but I wonder if my parents thought the same about me?
Touching and moving write Dale.

Youth is fleeting yes it is and growing older sometimes even more fleeting.
