Time Flies By

Filled with faith and promise

he was her light

Oh, she loved him with all her might

Didn’t know to hold on a little longer

Didn’t know to hold on a little stronger

Days flew by as her baby became a man

Guiding him on that path, that was her plan

Never knew he’d be gone too soon

All is lost as time flies by

Precious moments shatter like broken glass

when time flies by

She still waits by that kitchen window

each and every night

Oh, she tries to hide from the spite

She didn’t want to live with the anger

She didn’t want to condemn that stranger

Days flew by as her baby became a man

Guiding him on that path, that was her plan

Never knew he’d be gone too soon

All is lost as time flies by

Precious moments shatter like broken glass

when time flies by

Promises, promises

crying under that crumbling moon

promises, promises

he was gone too soon

Days flew by as her baby became a man

Guiding him on that path, that was her plan

Never knew he’d be gone too soon

All is lost as time flies by

Precious moments shatter like broken glass

when time flies by

Precious moments, they shatter

broken glass as time flies by

  1. They sure do grow up fast.. my wake up call was the year my son served in Afghanistan in 2010. He has truly never been home since… you put it into words so well… We love them and want them to have a wonderful life but they will always be our babies… 🙂

    Kind Regards – K

  2. Well written poem M. They repitition very much shows how sad and broken hearted the mother is after losing her son. I’m not sure if he died or they had a falling out, but I think she regrets whatever happened so much.

    1. This really came from a What If moment. My 19 year old son had just left to take a ride on his motorcycle- which still scares me every time he leaves. I always worry until he comes back home. I love your comments. Your insight really helps to see my poems from another point of view. Love that! Thank you so much! Michele
