Days Pass Slowly By

 

days pass slowly by

treasures briefly held

jewels beyond price

work their wonder

become one with life

 

days pass slowly by

instants run to ages

time intangible

passes through life

turns to memory

 

days pass slowly by

steps grow to miles

unfinished journey

by parts complete

each awaits the next

 

days pass slowly by

steps along the way

none but one an end

each one an instant

where eternity waits

 

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of

my parents, George and Grace Rhebergen
