* Vanishing Youth Pending - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Because
you are so young
and so solemnly beautiful;
and have an artistic
and academically gifted life;
shining ahead of you.

Because
I am so old
and weathered unhappy worn;
and have no illustrious life
to look forward too;
anymore.

Youth
always leaves
goes away
never to ransom return.
One day
you will know this too.

My sweet
vanishing youth.
My life vacated
also left with you.

If I could dream
I would dream of you.

Instead
I silently
constantly scream.
I miss you.
I miss you.
I miss you.

This echoing
dirge
never leaves
like you.
