Pictures, memories, time gone by
Fleeting moments, sands of time
Quickly they came, more quickly they slipped away
All my yesterdays ran into today.
I didn’t know at the time
That at no other place would I find
Such peace, such joy, such utter bliss
As I had during this season of happiness.
Why is it that now
I am older, yet younger somehow?
So much I thought I knew back then,
Now I just feel empty from deep within.
Years I’ve gained, but time I’ve lost,
Like a boat, on the waves, tossed.
Constantly yearning, trying to reach the shore.
Yet when I do, looking back, always wanting more.
