Finding myself yearning for the past Missing people and events of years gone by Everything I see reminds me of a moment Wishing to go back and relive it again. Before my eyes pieces of life falling away From the ones I knew and grew with to The changing times of the day I feel no different inside from days before All that was familiar through each year slowly disappearing From family to surroundings I find there’s less that I hold dear Can’t go back and I wish I could To every past moment, person and time If possible I would I guess this is what happens as time passes by As you grow older, living forever would be a lie. Nothing familiar here on earth That’s why there’s heaven where you find your life’s worth Being there, those days and people are waiting To be enjoyed once again and that goes without saying I do have a chance to live special moments and see those loved and admired once again. by Mitzie Lee Jimenez
