August Slipped Away


August slipped away….

The lovely sunny days and birthdays,

the sweet smell of ice cream and the ocean,

the laughs and joys of childhood,

all washed away with the waves.


I used to collect little treasures,

every time we went to the beach,

when I was a child.

I had a collection of seashell treasures,

now lost and gone with time.


Older and wiser,

but still learning new things each waking moment.

So I take a deep breath and close my eyes,

as I feel the time flowing by.


August slipped away….

And it shall slip away again and again with time.

A shatteringly lovely reminder that,

time truly doesn’t wait.
