AS THE YEARS GO BY

by W. Mahlon Purdin

There is a silence in the minds
Of children that gets lost
As the years go by.

A feeling of wonder looking
At something for the first time;
Of hearing some emotion for the first time;
Of doing things for the first time.
A silent emptiness waiting to be filled.

There's a noise that accumulates in the minds
Of people and it distracts us
As the years go by.

That feeling of losing ground;
Of watching our dreams pass by;
Of feeling emotions dampened by day-to-day;
Of doing the same thing over and over;
Of overwhelming yearnings we still have.

There is a peace that comes next
Like a blanket we slowly go under
As the years go by.
