Lost Generations …

Restless sands of time scattered across the hills

Over oceans, under bridges, across planes and through fields

They won’t stop nor slow down to acknowledge our here and now

For every moment, every second is being lost beyond the clouds.


Days roll into weeks, roll into months and then to years

Our short lives will be forgotten as new generations appear

Living for the moment; being grateful for all we’ve gained

Remembering those before us and the sacrifices they made


The pealing sound of laughter, children playing in the park

Trying to take this moment, make it their own and leave their mark

The children will soon be grown, they’ll take over when we’re gone

But they too will leave this world behind, for the next generation to embark upon
