#WednesdayVerses : Fragments of time
Into the oblivion I stare,
As I look back on life.
I sift through the memories,
And find the ones now rare.
I go back to the good old days,
As I reminisce the moments gone by.
I’m filled with a longing to turn back time,
To the time when my dreams I did chase.
These days life rushes past,
As if on a never ending march.
The moments of peace and solitude now rare,
I feel life is going by too fast.
The things I once took for granted,
I now wish I could bring them back.
Because those simple joys are now rare,
The past looks enchanted.
There are moments that I wish I could live again,
There are memories that I wish I could change.
But I know I can’t go back in time,
I walk ahead as I treasure it all with a twinge of pain.
As a part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Vinay and I have started this weekly prompt which we’ve decided to call Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. Please add your post links to the linky only if you have written for the prompt. We are happy to have you rhyme with us.Prompt #22 is “Rare”.
