Faded Years

I didn’t dream

So much as breathe,

I didn’t breathe

For fear of failing.

A moment in time

A memory gone by

One heartbeat

Blinking, I missed it.

Swift moments

Flash by

A small child

shining and new

Then a heartbeat

Passing moment

Faded fairy-tales

Now tattered timecards

Time becoming faded.
