In the Blink of an Eye


Seconds and minutes

Hours flitting by

Decades have passed

In the blink of an eye


Just moments ago

A new child was born

Then knees that were skinned

And hair that was shorn


Next dances and kisses

The girls and the boys

Years that go by

Now the price of the toys


A mortgage, a spouse

The whole package deal

Responsibilities build

This life it is real


After time you look back

To the highs and the lows

Some laughter, some smiles

And yes there were woes


But this life that was lived

Was yours for the taking

Remember it fondly

It was of your making
