When We Were Young

When We Were Young

Time is passing us by
The days too fast,
the nights just a blink of an eye
The sun, moon and stars seem to be against us
Subtly robbing us of our today
Playing the silent killers
Age deeps it’s venomous claws into our youth
Sapping the infant blood from our veins
And making away with our innocence
The seconds and minutes wait for no one
Every hour goes by so swiftly
Now, all we have are our memories
And long lists of what ifs, maybes and if only I had knowns
I miss those times
When we had no care in the world
And all the words of our lips,
and the thoughts in our heads,
We’re carried off on  the shoulders of the four winds
North, South, East and West
I miss the days of old
Of smooth, soft skin and agile limbs
Of when we were young
And thought not of the times to come after
When there would be no chances to redo all that we did wrong.
