Looking Back From Friday

Looking back from Friday,

five days into the past,

I see the week remembered,

the times that came to pass.

All the things left unspoken,

the memories re-newed,

all the mysteries unbroken,

and the bells always on cue.

All the time it took,

seemed so short,

and passed,

a single glance,

but the days we lived,

are now all gone,

never to come back.

I like this poem very much. The rhymes are comfortably subtle, and it creates a sad/happy feeling in me. It demonstrates smoothly how fast moments pass by, and how we are left to dwell on them when they do...

thanks! i want to turn it into a song, but i'm not sure if it would work...but i wanted to capture the feeling that you get when you realize that the week is suddenly over. life can seem so long, but when we look back on it, everything seems short and fleeting.
