Test Of Time
Author: Clive B Ringshall


Our Relationship has lasted oh so long,
Together we exsist to help one another through,
You were put there in my way,
I came and could not pass,
To see such a wonder before me took my breath away,
I remember how you gazed upon my body,
You were so caring not to touch,
So strong to let me pass in a way, I loved it so,
Without touching me once,
Yet I felt your every move,
I felt such a need to come through,
Many times we've passed each other by,
Times I long for you to ask,
Stop wait awhile let's talk just once,
I pass on by,
You stand with total pride,
You'r strength I admire,
For many others are no more,
I saw them come,
I passed them by,
I watched them crumble,
But you have lasted the test of time,
So now I'll stay next to you for all time.

How Sweet It Is!

Good Morning Clive! It's almost Good Afternoon!
I love the true meaning behind this heart touching poem "Test Of Time"! You've met someone who stands as firm as a wall! In comparison to line 21, when you say, "I watched them crumble"! But this person never falls, but only lasts the test of time! Absolutely beautiful!

Astounding Poem!
