2 poems by John Phebe

John Phebe


As the stars brighten the sky
And the day slowly dies
So the beauty of the night unravels
In an enchanting world that travels

Don't ever be scared of the bad times
Look above and you'll see the light in time
Not only will you experience the joy of dawn
But will marvel at how dreams will be reborn


The span of man so short
A game to win or lose
Prepared to crown who fought
So well than wear good shoes

In tender hands he grows 
And time reveals his worth
To bloom so bright like rose
While some go back and forth.

Life's journey is futile without reasons
But worth living with no ceasing
