Memories

Too bad the sun sets too fast,
In the winter leaving no time for walks,
Or snowball fights after school,
Too bad the spring flowers erupt from the ground before anyone notices,
And misses the miracle of survival of a tiny plant lasting all winter,
Too bad summer, like a shooting star, flies by too quick,
Leaving me wanting more of the firefly-catching,
Campfire-sitting nights in the humid air,
Too bad the leaves change brown so suddenly,
Making me wish I had payed attention to them transform,
From green to crimson red, fire orange, or banana yellow,
Too bad the snow melts so immediately,
That sledding only happens once or twice each year,
When the tiny flakes finally cover the grass with a foot thick blanket,
Too bad childhood is gone before you know it,
Leaving me with a feeling of emptiness and loss,
Of those days in the park,
Or biking down the road,
Or picking dandelions for Grandma,
Too bad, just like the seasons, memories only last so long,
And that I can’t remember Grandpa’s face anymore,
Or Mama’s smile,
Or Daddy’s voice,
Too bad imagination has an expiration date,
Too bad.

people could go a hundred years before realizing what you just said in about 2 minutes. when it's winter everyone wants summer and when summer comes they want it to be cool again and before they know it time is gone. made me think. great job :)

Wow... deep

The room was very quiet. I walked over to the TV set and turned it onto a dead channel-white noise at maximum decibels, a fine sound for sleeping, a powerful continuous hiss to drown out everything strange."

Nice Job Lady.
