Time left me behind.

Time left me behind.

A Poem by Anjali

I remember lightly,
When I was 6,
Waddling through the gardens,
Chasing after the birds.
Looking for hope,
At the butterflies on the top.

I remember Clearly,
When I was 16,
Dreaming about flowers,
Didn't care about the gardens.
Chasing after my dreams.
Looking for hope,
In the time of change.

I remember it perfectly,
When I was 26,
Walking through the doors,
Too far away from the gardens,
Chasing after life,
Looking for time,
In the hope of dimes.

I remember it!
I remember it all!!
As youth went away,
And came the fall.....

I remember it,
When I was 66.
Walking through my gardens,
Then came over the birds.
In their eyes were hope,
As it had been in mine.
Now I wonder,
The thing called life,
It had been satisfying,
And the moments were cherishing,
In this thing called life.......

And now I know, 
Time left me behind.

I love the outlook of this poem. It really makes you think of life and the times when you're younger and to think what you might think in time as you grow older. Valuing life is important is the message i'm getting. Great Job.

Nice ending line. I enjoyed this piece overall, but you have a lot of grammar and punctuation issues. Fix those, and you'll do even better.
