Poem: This Time is Fleeting

image

Everything
Everyone
Comes closer
Into focus
Those brief moments
Meaningful
Tender
Then gone

I can go anywhere
I can do anything
For it all
To become
Meaningless

These moments
Joys shared
Secrets whispered
Touching and to be touched
Triumph of our wills
Best times of our lives
The only realities
I seek
Find them
Like treasures
Hidden
Hold them
Hope that this time
It’s real
It’s something
It’s meaningful
Forget the world
For just a little while longer
Please

I know
It’s all fleeting
It will all be gone
Forgotten
Nothing
Dead and buried
As I shall also be

What will be left?
Some stories, some stuff
Words and pictures
Memories
That fade
Out of focus
Going further into the distance

No one
Nothing
Like it never even happened
