Simplistic list of things now missed
when days were long and skin sun-kissed,
on through the day we reminisced
to sinking sun and sleep resist.
Discovering glory in the moment
drink it up and leave it dry,
now finding here a single tear
regrets from heart to eye.
Captured time forever
good things come but always burn,
our only hope from sliding slope
is to those days return.
The essence of a minute
taste it now on heaven's lips,
simply pray to find your way
and all those things now missed.
