People Are Not Here Forever – Written Friday 16th December 2011 (Aged 36)

People Are Not Here Forever

will it be the last conversation
or is that kind talk –
just too over the top
none of us think about the clocks
and that one day, they will stop
that the conversations –
you take for granted
will suddenly become –
no more than precious memories
moments that glistened
it is the so called dramas
it is those that shine
and then, one day it is all left behind
people are not here forever
i know that,
but sometimes it is soon
right now i want to wind the clock back
