Fandango’s Friday Flashback — May 8

Oh days you pass so quickly out of sight
Our bodies growing old sink into dark
Soon will come the longest ever night
This is the future be it oh so stark
It seems not long since playing in the street
We thought that life would never ever end
But now we know that soon we all must meet
The Grimest Reaper he must be our friend
How could years pass so fast it takes our breath
In memory we live them all again
Our eyes fill now with tears there’s nothing left
And so I write my mem’ries with my pen
We wait for time to end with beating hearts
For soon the beat will stop as the veil parts


  1. The rhyme scheme is beautiful and unforced. The flow is conversational and smooth. The emotions you evoke are strong and delivered in powerful words. Well done!

    Thanks Brad. I sometimes do like to write sonnets, though they are considered to be old fashioned. I don’t care though. Thankyou for your kind words.
