Time - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

In my youth
Days went on forever
Hours lasted all day
And minutes moved so slowly
That it almost seemed as though
Time stood still

All that
Was such a long time ago
But I still remember
My childhood days
As though it was
A wonderful sacred dream

These days
I would love to return
To those earlier times
When simplicity
Was the most complicated thing
I ever needed to do

And though I try
There is nothing I can do
Other than smile
Bow my head
And recall
A child’s memories

These days
No matter how hard I try
Tomorrow comes
Much too quickly
And I can’t remember
Any of my childhood secrets
On how to make time
Stand still
