Swing Still Swaying - Poem by Silentpoet Grl

swing still swaying
the way it did when i was a kid
riding it high
reaching the skies
pretending i could fly
now its empty
swaying slowly
a ghost from the past
the soft wind blowing
no more being carefree
nothing left to reach for
memories fading
floating quietly by

    Ethereal in feel.
    The cruel nudge of nostalgia.
    Short but not sweet...touching memories of many i think.
    Well done sp
