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


The End
