Memories Etched

I paused today

Put cares away

Relaxed and 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

The End
