Ageless Age

It is time that offers

Largesse to the lonely,

While it is  memories

That offer loneliness.

It is fear that brings

Years of hibernation,

While it is fearlessness

That provides for dormancy.

It is hope that flowers

Today’s unsettling despair,

While it is yesteryear

That continues to quail.

It is starvation that heals

The echo of lost faith,

While it is indulgence

That fails to believe.

It is time that offers

Answers to forgotten queries,

While it is memories

That never cease to question.

-Deborah Simpson
