Don’t let the years slip away


Don’t let the years slip away

Written By Dean Masciarelli

September 16, 2010 (6:31pm)


Don’t let the 
years slip away 

From you

So that you can
enjoy 
every single day

Because they 
will 
pass you by

Faster then you 
can blink an eye

And they will
gradually 
sneak up on you

Faster then you 
may want them to

And then one day you 
wont recognize the 
person that you used to be

Because by then you 
will be old and gray 

And that’s just  reality

Don’t let the 
years slip away 

From you

So that you can
enjoy 
every single day

Because they 
will 
pass you by

Faster then you 
can blink an eye
