Time doesnt wait…

As i walk down memory lane,
i see myself smile and laugh,
simple pleasures make me cheer,
the person i see seems so dear.

She is a girl small and happy,
a daughter a child to her parents.
dancing and singing whole day long,
no fears no worries to tag along.

Now i see a maiden shy and demure,
head down she walks she is still pure.
she still smiles and laughs but consciously,
no longer she sings and moves cautiously.

She is a woman now with burdens to bear,
worries and troubles follow her here and there.
smiles are so few and she laughs no more,
she thinks of her family and frets some more.

Where is the child who laughed and sang,
danced and smiled no tears she cried.
Where is the maiden shy and hesitant,
gone is her charm smart but now distant.

Days and years and decades pass by,
her duties are complete and time goes by.
She can now sing and dance without worry,
but she is old and her feet disagree…
