A poem about time passing, leaving only memories behind.


Hours, days, years
Pass nimbly by
Erasing yesterdays

Pitter-patters become footsteps
That run away.
To begin a new life

The past rusts, parts are lost or missing
We struggle to buff and repair
To keep the pieces together

Dust collects on holidays,birthdays, vacations
Confined to boxes, scrapbooks, and attics
Yellowing as years pass.

Canonized memories 
hang in wooden frames.
Staring, haunting, ghostly images of the past

I love the simplicity of your poem. However, it has a sad impression of the past. When I look at momentos from the past, I think only joy.

Are you trying to make this old mom cry? "Pass nimbly by" certainly expresses the speed of children growing before our eyes until they are suddenly gone. Skillful writing that tells a too-real story of life.
The picture is the perfect touch!
