Time Heals

Time Heals


The fury of anger and the heat of passion

An all consuming searing of emotions

Are in the present moment boundless in intensity

The after glow of passion generates a fondness

Where memories are venerated and cherished

The aftermath of unbridled anger unleashes

Embarrassment with vengance and damaged pride

Into these emotions of intense human behaviour

Comes the elixer of time to mellow and soothe

But we are rememberancers with memories unsubdued

Such is the burden of life in all its deeds

Regret saddens the heart as a shower of rain

It falls and fails to quench the soul

Time is a gift of healing past memories

For reflection is sound meditation

Internal self examination a personal confession

And confession is good for the soul

Here's a thought from way back:

Hi Keith! Think a lot of reflection must have gone into this! Each separate line is noteworthy in my humble opinion. Liked especially 'regret saddens the heart as a shower of rain, it falls and fails to quench the soul'. Better and better each time.

Confession sure is good for the soul! I absolutely believe that reflection is the key to healing. Really nicely put Keith.
