There will be a time

There was a time
when we were children
that stars twinkled with magic
and dreams were fantastic

There was a time
when we were teenagers
and a lover’s first kiss
made us feel electric

There was a time
when we crashed head first
into adulthood, not knowing
where this path will lead us

There was a time
when we looked back
and thought of paths
not taken

There was a time
when loved ones and lovers
passed on and we are
alone

There will be a time
when regrets are will
haunt us at night

There will be a time
when Autumn turns to Winter
and our time nears
its end

There will be a time
when our dreams and hopes scratch
across a cold sidewalk
like dead leaf in the wind

There will be a time
when we no longer can keep it.
It will slip away from us
and we become a part of it
