Book

There are times
When I feel an affinity
With an old forgotten book
Dusty and worn
With a sad pitted cover
Where the elements and time
Have taken their toll
The chapters of my life
Make no great reading
Like the book
Neither of us is a classic
But we both have a story
To tell
In pages so steeped
Within sadness and sorrow
As great bitterness and regret
Weep from both our spines
And the glue
Which for so long
Bound us both
To our own existence
Had deteriorated
Beyond all recognition
But more than any other thing
The final two words
Of both our journeys
Remain true and constant
“The End”

Very pensive write but then all of us have had plenty of time to take a closer look at life - where we have been - the now - and wonder about the future. Of course none of us live forever here on planet Earth. Very thought provoking poem. Thanks for sharing.

Beautifully expressed feelings ~ BUT ~ I believe your book is far from already having it's last chapter written.

I think that there are not only many more chapters to write in the story of your life~ but in addition ~ Many more books to be written.

Hi, trurorob,
Surely, There are times everyone living can identify with the emotion of regret so well-portrayed in this reflective poem. Where the elements and time Have taken their toll . Fortunately for us, the poet has many fine stories to tell that, like treasured books, are still read and enjoyed. Thank you for sharing.

Each of us has a purpose here in life. We may not be seem important in our own minds but we are important to others that we touch. Just have you have been encouraging tome and I thank you for that. At the end of the journey looking back - I would rather have all my friends and my faith then all the fame and money in the world. It gets lonely at the top. Your book is a good read.
