My days are moving faster now

than they ever did

and summers lasted longer

when I was just a kid


I don’t know all the reasons why

the seasons, fly by

but there are too many candles

on my birthday cake


I can’t take it slower

though I know I should

’cause the world is turning faster

than I wish it would


I know I’m growing older

and that time will not erase

the lines and all the creases

I see upon my face


So, I’m saving up my memories

of the way things were

before they get too fuzzy

and all become a blur


I’ve lived and laughed and loved

but in the end we find

“the road ahead is shorter

than the one we’ve left behind”

  1. I once had a sculpture professor who looked at a piece I had done and said, “I wish I had done that.” It was the highest compliment he could have given me as his work was superb. When I read your poem, I remember his line…I wish I had written that. 🙂 hugs, pat
