Gradient Hourglass

Some time ago, I remember what my great aunt said:

“Oh, there is more than day and light.”

“Look far beyond what comes to sight.”

At five of age, I went to sleep, head on the bed.

 

Now prime in youth, my future strong and heart in beat.

“Life complete,” I thought, “Still what could

My dear Aunt Faith have meant. I’m good.”

I’m twenty now, my brain still can’t rest in its seat.

 

Like stormy clouds, my hair is grey; my tears are pale

“I see what she had meant to say”

The present and the future, day

But past and the old are knights to guide us on our tales.
