Time Flies

Time Flies

A Poem by Crossroads
"

A man goes back to his abandoned childhood home thinking about his parents.

"
Image result for abandoned back porch

Two spirits rest in graveyard floors,
though of past days - I do recall 
there inside the peeling back door
their younger voices I hear no more.
The back porch swing's a rusted thing
the see-saw now lies still.
My youth so seems like only a dream,
old family frames display us three -
but sadly - all that's left is me.

Talk about being able to relate! I, too, am the one left standing and it is sad to look at the old photos and remember. Still, those photos are precious to me as are the memories. We are their legacy. We are the ones who will speak of them and remember. A melancholy reflective write....filled with honest emotion. Lydi**

Thank you for reading.
in 4th line did you mean "hear"?
I read it as that.
i relate to his piece...as is true for me. Both gone now, and only me left to carry on.
I think of all those old abodes...the apartment in NY, the house on McKinley in Lockport...
and others...we all lived there once...Life is so different now without them in it.

Yes, thanks for pointing that out and thanks for the review.
Profoundly sad.
It is a heavy burden to live long enough to see our cherished loved ones become mere memories.
Work with definite impact, C!

my pleasure.
I like this short poem Imagination. You have caught the sadness of advancing years when we think back to the familiar memories of family, people and places, and particularly those that are no longer with us.
Regards,
Alan
