Poem





Fading Shadows

by Royce A Ratterman


Fading shadows we wish to last,
Days of skipping, laughing gone,
Life's vainglories ever past.
Pensive prisons sublime our past,
Focal pains of dark days wrong,
Fading shadows we wish to last.
Keepsake boxes from memories past,
Temporal joys now distant long,
Life's vainglories ever past.
Heartless times - Self's sorrows cast,
Etched deep in mind like painful song,
Fading shadows we wish to last.
Thoughts from the dust of days blown past,
We grasp for with hearts which time made strong,
Life's vainglories ever past.
In darkened stance our pangs hold fast,
Binding us to selfish wrongs,
Fading shadows we wish to last,
Life's vainglories ever past.

Ecclesiastes 11:8
