I wonder…

I wonder where they went?

The years when eternity stretched ahead,
and sunshine paved its path.

The months that wouldn’t go by fast enough,
and then swept past with a sigh.

The weeks counted from end to end,
and each beginning anew again.

The days of waiting for each sunset,
to cross out dates in impatient countdowns.

The hours lost staring at blue skies,
not-watching the clouds go lumbering by.

The minutes passing in a steady drizzle,
like sparkling raindrops falling from the sky.

The seconds of counted breaths,
each one a lifetime in itself.

The moments when time stood still,
and only now was real…
