Catching Those Moments of Youth

Spring Clouds and Flowers 016

Life takes us on a ride,

so fast it twirls about us,

that it seems we are riding,

upon a carousel,

that never seems to stop.

It’s amazing how things change,

the years like restless birds fly by,

but the sun and the moon,

are still in the sky.

There never seems enough time,

just to sit back and reflect,

on things that have been.

Memories are so special,

they shine like precious gold.

but oh, take those moments –

when youth seemed eternal.

Days seemed to lead one to another,

full of the dreams we were dreaming.

The magic and fantasy we shared,

days when friends,

were fun to hang out with.

rock and roll filled our ears

and it seemed that the laughter –

would never end.

Then the times they flew,

some friends are still with us,

some have passed on

and some we no longer know.

To be like in a fairytale,

to have but one day,

in which we could relive –

a fleeting moment of our youth.

Just to contact with old friends

and remember what our dreams once were.

Then to get on with living,

able to say –

Hey, the best years are now

and more just round the bend.

But oh, what fun to relive our youth,

for a brief moment in time.

So that we can go forth,

with smiles on our faces.

The best years are now,

for now we know who we are.

We’ve seen so very much

and we’ve grown,

the memories we left behind,

remain in our hearts forever.

We can treasure them

and never forget,

the way we were –

when we were so very young.
