Celebrating a Year

week 575 ~ time always passing as lit from within

with 2 comments

time always passing as lit from within
memories escape from their holding cell
with joy or sorrow hallmarks of life well
and truly lived too many to begin
to spend time while the present rushes in
and then it’s gone with stories yet to tell
I hold fast in the current if I fell
would I pass on too would momentum win
or tied to a life path I can’t let go
in moments of despair because of all
who wouldn’t understand I chose to fall
to rush through the interminably slow
unwinding of years left dreams forgotten
have I the strength to stand back up again

  1. Time does seem to move all too quickly these days…and with each fall…we must arise again…smiling that we can still stand.

    • Yes, a time in our lives to celebrate what we can still hold onto.
