Remember when?
just a kid back then,
you'd spin and spin
and the world spun
with you,
standing still,
merely standing still
and the earth spun beneath you,
life a blur
colours vaguely reminiscent
of half remembered forms
only half-percieved
the essence remains
an emotion
as if it all were just a dream
And yet falling
ashes to ashes
dust to dust
as we all must
Kaleidescopes
become microscopes
with silvered hair
and false teeth
and gold rimmed glasses
and bones that creak like well worn houses
we glean each scent,
each caress,
every gold guilded detail
as if life were a precious
much beloved volume
left to dust and mold and musk
Heavy with the dust of ages
our dried wrinkly fingers
gingerly pull back each page
and finally we savor the moments
in these the last of days

Beautiful. I guess the best we can hope for is that the volume of Time & Memories shall be filled with many good and wonderful things upon which to set our gaze, for we shall also see the evidence of many fallen tears......... : )

Hadn't thought about those bittersweet tears, but you're right--- a very beautiful. profound, and poetic way of looking at them.
