Light Speed Leaves You Wondering

 

Blink your eyes and 10 years are gone

The little neighbor is driving now, instead of riding her bike

The little kid down the street is getting married

Your nephew, instead of watching Sponge Bob, is watching Dirty Harry

What the hell happened to the last decade?

People look at you and see ‘ancient!’

Light speed leaves you wondering,

How did the time slip by me?
