Life is like the sands of an hour glass,
quickly sifting away.
Gone are those youthful days;
Baseball games, swimming holes,
Barbie dolls, lipstick and
girlish things, bicycle rides
and high schools ties.
Dates at teen town,
cruising up Main Street
then back down.
Young lovers on a distant river bank,
splendor in the tall green grass,
love they thought would forever last.
Day to weeks, weeks to months and
months to years. A life fulfilled,
husband, children, tones of
laughter and even a few sad tears.
But the sands of time has eventually taken its
toll, all good things must come to an end.
Here today…gone tomorrow.
And end they did!
