No Measure of Time--By Audrey Haick--United States

No Measure of Time

Unspoken words linger in the depth of souls
Preserved with reverence… a moment to unfold
In classic silence, weary eyes stare long, hard; deep
Hands gently pairing, find each other, like ripe fruit to reap

In mellow warm embrace, misty eyes and hearts race in time
Forever to savor this moment sublime
When love need not speak a word to amplify its pleasure
And true love bears time no measure

Soon, furrows will lie upon your brow; fine silver strands highlight my curls
Yet, for always, we will forever be… this boy and girl

Audrey, a.k.a. Annalise Brigham resides in beautiful Maryland, U.S.A. A Mother to one amazing daughter.  She's also a published author and loves writing and reading poetry.


  1. Dear Audrey, your poem reminds me of the first time I found true love. The longing for this to continue with "No Measure of Time" has an uplifting and spiritual quality. Over time our bodies change, but true love continues eternally. Bless you for sharing this moving poem with us, my friend. Much love, Carolyn D.

  5. Hello, Audrey, I marked this under artistic because of the depth of feeling and emotion projected into as I read............. this is a wonderful, thought-provoking sentiment with which we are all familiar. It sort of exudes an echo... Sheri

  6. Certainly, with beautiful times as you've illustrated in your poem, there is "No Measure of Time." Time can not hold back precious times or fond memories of even past events that may have meant a lot. Thank you for sharing this, Audrey. I really enjoyed it.

  10. True love is eternal and when two hearts become one beat; a soulmate is born! I love romantic poems; they are so full of hope and endearment and encourage those still looking for the other to keep at it. Love Jane
