Posted in grief, Poem


Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love,
time is eternity.

by Henry Van Dyke



I'm not sure what to say about myself - I never know what to put here...I'm a thirtysomething female, who has a chocolate Labrador called Rosie. I love music, films, photography, walking, and reading.

One thought on “Time

  1. What a perfect poem, Michelle. Thank you for sharing it. 🙂 Brings Scott-Holland to mind as well, I think, although I disagree with Scott-Holland’s idea that ‘death is nothing at all’, the imagery of the poem is wonderful, but there’s no need to minimise the pain, in my view.
