A Fading Flame – A Poem By Walt Page, The Tennessee Poet

I am like a fading flame
Slowly dimming into darkness
Once burning brightly
Lighting up a room
Now a fading memory
Of glory days gone by
Lately I have not been myself
I feel like I’m fading to grey
Like the color of storm clouds
That get darker and darker
I’m fading into myself
And fading into you
Like the fading lyrics
Of a forgotten song

And then I sleep

Happy New Year Everyone!!

  1. I hope you are not ill or experiencing more pain, Walt. My mom has been diagnosed with arthritis in her spine and she is experiencing pain and discomfort more and more frequently. I often think of you and prayer for strength for her and you.
