As Time Passes

Go down

As Time Passes Empty As Time Passes

Post  mikeschultz on Wed Jan 09 2013, 07:38

I grow older and more feeble, yet memories,
embraced as gently as I might the clouds,
are strong. They keep me alive
and save me from believing the condemnations,
mine, yours, his, hers, theirs, or ours.
I always seem to think, I could do better,
though I have given the task my best efforts,
at least one hundred and ten percent.

But now, now I must content myself
that time alone will win the race, placing first
over matter and space, and the three will leave
me forgotten so very, very far behind.
But I’m not gone yet. I may be older,
more feeble, even, yet memories fill my dreams,
crowding, pushing and shoving to be recalled
through a vaporous membrane.
