All that time brings 

All that time brings 

The simplifications
      that come with time
the slow build
      of experience
of knowledge
      the remembrance
together with the forgiving
      and the forgetting
after all
      life is too short
or too long depending
      on the perspective

In time
      the frenzy abates
the struggle
      to make one’s way
less intense
      the hot head cools
there is room for love
      with all its gentle acts
of affection from sunrise
      to sunset
