NaPoWriMo : Day 6

Poetry Prompt: Make that line the title of your poem. Write a poem inspired by the line. Then, after you’ve finished, change the title completely.

Instead of a line, I decided to write about how some authors are able to write words that can endure even as the time in our lives keeps moving forward.

I missed it the first time 
I found it the second time
The third time I fell asleep
But I already knew what happened The fourth time didn't lose its charm
The fifth time still strong
The sixth time was a long time separated
From the fifth
Some books are meant to be shared
This one goes back on my shelf
The seventh time
Comes around

I will be posting my poems here: I hope you will drop by!
