There was a time in my life
The massive world before me
Windows opened for the climb
Falcon through air, winged beauty

Now fading like light during sunset
Battles fought, young spirit adrift
Time looking more like a threat
Childlike vision no longer a gift

Changes clear, reflections of truth
Gravity winning the war
Hands on the clock steals my youth
Like paper strange images tore

Is it over; is there still time
Mind can’t fathom reality
New visions; not in my prime
Weighing in on mortality

Perhaps this fear and retreat
Betrayal deep; my own doing
Notions no longer so sweet
Point of view my own brewing

Inevitable is this shift
Circle of life; dust to dust
Fought the war, memories swift
Rewards a life I must trust
