 My days are moving faster now

than they ever did

and summers lasted longer

when I was just a kid


I don’t know all the reasons why

the seasons fly by

but there are too many candles

on my birthday cake


I can’t take it slower

though I know I should

’cause the world is turning faster

than I wish it would


I know I’m growing older

and that time won’t erase

the lines and the creases

I see on my face


So, I’m saving up my memories

of the way things were

before they get too fuzzy

and become a blur


I’ve lived and laughed and loved

but in the end we find

“the road ahead is shorter

than the one we’ve left behind”
