Where Did The Time Slip Away
Her auburn hair has turned to gray.
The curls long since have gone away.
The soft,firm skin upon her face.
The ravages of time have now replaced.
So many years of memories have been erased.
Where have they gone have they been misplaced?
Her body was once vibrant and strong.
Now it's tired ,in pain,it's so very wrong.
They say heaven brings back our youth.
She often wonders if this is the truth.
The tiny,little lines on her face have begun to show.
The step in her walk has begun to slow.
People don't make time for her any more.
Is this what growing old has in store?
The feelings of hurt and loneliness inside.
But,still she smiles,her pain she hides.
She sits and ponders this question each day--
Where did the time slip away?
