MEMORIES ETCHED

Written by: Jeff Bresee

I paused today
Put cares away
And finally let
The moment stay

Saw feathered skies
Through children’s eyes
Let time stand still
And realized

This life of gain
And gathering in
Pursuits of gold
Desires to win

They offer not
But jaded dust
Doomed to decay
By moth and rust

And time cares not
Nor pardon grants
For foolish charge
Or circumstance

But slowly slips
As grains of sand
Through trembling grip
Of aging hand

So lend an ear
And pause, I pray
Take time to let 
The moments stay

For precious times
Allowed to be 
Etch memories for
Eternity
