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.

Love it! We’ll see you and Sim up there! We’ll catch moonbeams together as we frolic on the moon river. :-))

@Nelson D Reyes: Thank you for liking Brod. Yes, we'll sail on to Camelot and destinations further west. LOL
