Faded – DP

The light of the day is fading,

cows are coming into rest.

Leaves on trees now withering,

Autumns done it’s best.

Music passes from a distant car,

dwindling into the night.

I watch it as it drives away,

then it’s finally out of sight.

My memories have faded now,

growing fainter by the day.

One day I suppose they’ll vanish,

simply by melting away.

My hair has lost its colour now,

my eyesights getting dim.

There’s roundness to my body,

where I used to be so slim.

The skin on my face is looser,

hands once strong are weak.

Not many an afternoon now,

where I won’t be found asleep.

Time has come to just fade away,

leave this world to the young.

I think of you, our memories,

back to where our love begun.

You are still so clear in my mind,

I still dream of you each night.

Each moment we spent together,

every one such a delight.

Pondering on these thoughts of you,

I can really feel you near.

My heart makes a little flutter,

as you are so very dear.

Now I see you walking up the steps,

you’re holding out your hand.

I know you’ve come to escort me,

to those eternal summer lands.
