Fading Away My soul is weary, my movements slow And my days grow fewer and fewer The house has fallen into disarray Both ghosts of when we were newer Time has slipped away from us Merely shadows of what we were We can't go back and relive the past Nor always have what we prefer The front gate hangs from rusty hinges Weeds have strangled all the flowers Life is rapidly fading from both of us As we while away the hours Thoughts of the past so bittersweet Flow gently through my mind Thinking of friends and loved ones Who will soon be left behind Once standing proud and beautiful Weathered and gloomy to my dismay Our days on Earth will soon be o'er As we are both surely fading away Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© May 11, 2006 All Rights Reserved
