Reflecting Back

Children dream of growing up fast
Focused on future, forgetting the past.  

Wishfully thinking, days go slow
Blind to the breeze and trees that bow.

While jumping rope and climbing walls  
Thinking: “Someday I’ll be big and tall.”    

Just like parents and pilots that fly
Children want to reach up and touch the sky.  
Now ever so gently, lay me down to rest
Praying for strength to do my best.

To make it one more grown-up day
Right here, where I once hoped I’d play.

Dancing in the rain again
Laughing wildly with family and friends.

Such a fleeting, immeasurable time ago was I
Merely a twinkle in someone’s eye.

Here today and gone the morrow
Bitter sweet life’s joys and sorrows.

Oh to be so young once more
And glad to finally close that door.  

Reflecting back in a mirror’s gaze
Life is shorter than a pin-knife blade.

    Being young is for the innocent (hopefly) being old is not for the faint of heart and being in between goes so fast one can't remember what happened.Wonderful view you have of time passing. Hugs to you Terry, I'm part of the land of the living again. Love, Lizzie
