Time Marches On

An old man and his wife
sits talking about their colorful past
their hearts are lonely but filled with love
because they contain memories that will last.

Of years that have swiftly passed
taking with them sounds excited children make
when they are eagerly helping their mother
making candy, cookies or cake.

Or waiting for dad to come home
hoping he bought a puppy like he said he would
Yes, dad and mom have fond memories
that is easily understood.
