Selfishly time has flown by faster than a wild horse at full gallop
Afar the fiery orb bids its final farewell to the lingering shadows of day
Tardy birds relish the dying embers as homeward they wend their way
Vignettes of happy moments enjoyed a word a smile your hand in mine
Selfish am I in my desire of you your time your presence your being divine
Together we once were one…fleeting seconds in a lifetime of years
A nimble minute in the lightning flash of our lives not without tears
Thank you for the laughter the fun the nonsensical joys we shared
Mostly for your intelligence and friendship showing you always cared
It is a given, I believe, this time of each year causes one to reflect upon the past. However, for me, the timing really is no different…because, for me, every day is filled with reflections.
I looked in the mirror yesterday. Upon seeing my reflection, I received such a shock! I almost collapsed in fright! It’s not a healthy practice; one I'll have to cease doing! It’s not good for my heart!
