Why is it as we age, yesterdays seem near;

memories of spent youth vivid and so clear?

It wasn't long ago I ran to chase the wind;

and felt as if that energy would never end.


Played from dawn to dusk; every kind of game;

with certainty, each day would bring the same.

A year never ending; a child's idea of eternity;

Then we grow up and enter years of paternity.

Long before I'm ready; kids are heading out the door.

In retrospect, I watch as years go speeding by me;

Unlike the child, I now know; a year is not eternity.
