In the Afterglow

Once, a child I was; long, long time ago
 
Those days forever gone, they didn’t last!
 
Now, as grey cells go; mem’ries fading fast
 
Soon I may forget friends I used to know!
 
Time flies fast, while I await winter’s snow
 
Leaves on the ground, numerous as days pass’d
 
Twilight has come; and the sky’s overcast,
 
The evening’s here, I’m in the afterglow!
 
But the world’s not grim with you by my side
 
For together, we’ll celebrate the night
 
We’ll embark on a rollercoaster ride
 
Feast on ambrosia and Turkish delight
 
Happiness we’ll seek; we won’t be denied
 
We’ll sail to the stars, bathing in moonlight!

A longer version and in sonnet form of an earlier poem (Afterglow) that I have posted. It was written in the same spirit and sentiment as my earlier poem.
