Years May Go By

As we age we realize how the years may go by so quickly without us realizing how fast time really is. When celebrating a birthday some of us reflect on where the years have gone. Let these poems remind you to live life as time does pass to quickly.

And be motivated by our collection of time passes quickly quotes.

Years Go By

Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

Think of all the special people
Who love you and care
The people in your life
Who touched you by being there.

Don't count your candles
Or think about the years
Think about your blessings
Don't let your birthday be a fear.

Each year that goes by
Remember you are blessed
To have so many people
Who have contributed to your happiness.

Time Never Tired
Poet: A. T. Lowe

TIME, never tired, with scythe and glass,
Maintains his march ; how quick years pass!
No earthly power affects his force,
Can hasten, or retard, his course,
He counts the years of all alive,
And states my age at eighty-five:
Four score and five ! what joys, what woes,
Their truthful record might disclose!
What deeds of charity appear,
And kindly acts from self-love clear;
What timely aid to foes, or friends,
And what to further private ends?

Man is the offspring of his love;
Kindly, or cold, his life may prove;
When social, and from self-love free,
He personates true charity;
Observes the GOLDEN RULE, and stands
Ready to aid, with outstretched hands,
The friend, or stranger, he may find
Whose fate, or fortune, seems unkind.
Self-love disclaims all brotherhood,
Nor ever thinks of others' good,
But combats, with persistent strife,
The highest, noblest aims of life.

Poems About Life

The hands on a clock never falter, not for a second. One day ends; and a new begins. If there was one thing on this earth that could be counted on, it was that.

Of late I appear
To have reached that stage
When people who look old
Who are only my age.
