Funny concept, time is
Calm comfortable day shifts to cold windy night.
Confidence and hope into despair and plight.
Time…there never seems to be enough
Hair, full of color, now dull and shades of gray
Belief in nothing morphs into deep thought and prayer
From first steps to first kiss, then off to college
Making you proud with a thirst for knowledge
The sun rises and you vigorously get on to your day; sunset, tired, the day gave too much to take any more
Rookie will be the veteran as they ascend the ladder
Pushed to the side, they will be, because the new blood matters
So anxious for the event then it passes so swiftly
Be sure to enjoy youth as it ends all too quickly
Running with vigor; spry in your teens
Gasping, reserved in your 40’s, hands clasping the knees
Nervous to make the call as she finally gives you her number
“Does she like me?” you ask yourself
You hear that she rings you – you jump from your slumber
Confirms it, she does, and your heart slowly melts
Exhilarating as it begins
Surprisingly, communication deteriorates, tensions exacerbate and you wonder about your last resort
The worrying and fighting; consumed with the end
Most love isn’t everlasting, I’m sorry to report
Cherish that loved one as they walk out that door; let go of grudges, make amends to heal sores
On the 10th we had towers and the 11th they were no more.
God Bless America and ALL of its citizens.
