As Time Flies By

Updated on June 19, 2012

Celebrate

All time flies by
It all becomes a history
Celebrate in the now
Don't save your joy
For memories
For memories

Times were great back when
Life seems to work out that way
Here is always much worse
So as what they say
Can't let the past cover you
You'll miss all the joy
If you don't understand
It's like getting a new toy
You play with and when
The time is soon done
You place it on a shelf in your heart
Leave it alone

All time flies by
It all becomes a history
Celebrate in the now
Don't save your joy
For memories
For memories

Time doesn't stand still it moves
Leaves the life behind you
Nostalgia is ok, not when
It's all you want to do
There is nothing quite like being
Sure of what's in your heart
But if it's to crowded in there
Joy won't find a place to start

All time flies by
It all becomes a history
Celebrate in the now
Don't save your joy
For memories
For memories
Give yourself a chance to live life
You have to, you have to

      I have learned memories are great but don't let them take over your life.

      This poem is awesome. It flows smoothly like a song and it touches on emotions that are totally relatable!

      whittwrites - you proved your "name" with this one. This is so good it could be a song.

      Do you know how to let go, please?

      I have the same problem. I lock memories away when I should let go. That is where the idea for the poem came from

      You're are so right about not storing memories because that's what I've done. Not wanting to let go of my Dad and my Brother.

      Voted up and beautiful, Joyce.
