Creating the Fabric

Where do the years go,
each one passing more quickly than the one before
Days drag, decades fly
small changes unnoticed
each moment bringing the next
never acknowledging
the passing of time

then we age
and look backward more than a few inches
the inches grow to feet
then yards
before we know it
we carry a thousand miles on our face

We yearn to live for the moment
and appreciate the now
without mourning the passing of time
and embrace the lessons that create the wrinkles
while hoping for a future
better than the past

There is comfort in knowing
that through it all
every moment, every yard
every mile and every day
we are alive
and able to wonder, able to question, able to move on

each moment may be great
or not
the accumulation of those moments
each one a thread in the story of our lives
strengthens the fabric
and leaves our imprint long after we are gone.
