Love and Time

By Elri Voigt

Gazing over her subjects, Time watches

Waiting for the next victim to be subject to her iron rule

None can escape it, like a goddess

She waits, immortal and cruel

To laugh as mankind tries to outrun her, and fails


Two pairs of eyes meet

Two hearts skip a beat

Two souls believe

In a destiny

Two hands join together

Time sees all and smiles, it will only be

A matter of days, weeks, months, or years

Before the two hands are free

She settles back to watch love adhere

To her spells

The hands on the clock turn; days become years

Life hints at a farewell,

Yet Time does not have as much power as she appears

Despite rolling eyes, clenched fists, and frustrated yells

Slammed doors never remain shut for long

Tears are dried when fingers are intertwined once more

For until death does part

The two remain joined heart to heart
