Times Change With Or Without Our Help

Go With The Flow

It is amazing to think after all these years we are the same person

In our minds we feel the same

Still believing we think the way we always have

We see our body changing

When we turn on the t.v. and see all our old programs have also been replaced

With newer and more current sitcoms and shows

At work policies and bosses

Co-workers and our hours are all different

The way we view the news through newspapers and magazines

Have become a thing of the past

Hearing about child stars who now know longer with us

Like Shirley Temple who was a living legend

Brings about an adjustment to my way of thinking

Why do we not notice changes so easily ?

Is it because they happen so gradual that we don't notice ?

Maybe it is that we are all human

Accepting life is shorter than we think

Will only complicate our lives even more

How can the years go by so quickly ?

As I look even closer

I have watched my own family

Grow old and in many cases pass away

Each day the sun comes up

Then at night the sun disappears out of sight

The world is always evolving and growing

We are the future of tomorrow

If we look twenty years ahead in time

So many differences in our own lives will show

Uncertainty of us still being here is a possibility

How true is the saying here today gone tomorrow ?

Let each day be a reflection of who we want to be

Not some time later

But now

So people will know the real you

A person who has such a passion for life

That lives every moment with gusto

Because as I have heard these few words repeated often over and over

To many times to count

This day may very well be your last

Dream On, very well-written and a thoughtful poem. Time is like a magician and we are his instruments. To some of us, life is just breath coming and going and engaged with things of livelihood but to some every bit of it is a wonder, a miracle, a magic, a secret... and what not. I am amazed by your insight and it looks as if time is a dancer and you are a musician and a wonderful dance is going on before you. Loved this soulful piece and voted, sure. Much peace.

Harishprasad I am touched. Your kindness and thoughtfulness can't be described. My words are lacking but not the feeling inside. I wonder how words that we all say make it on paper. They are arranged in so many ways. That everything we want to say has been said. Then again it is worth repeating so it can be heard once again. Thank you so much. Your time to read and leave a comment is cherished. Much appreciated and thanks for giving me this special opportunity to play for you. All night if you would so like.
