Who I See


I see life moving far too quickly
Blurring the lines between childhood and middle-age

Looking in the rear-view mirror at a lonely past
I stick my hand out the window
And the wind picks up speed

I spy through the railing
Those who have crossed my path
And up a ways, at the intersection
Are those I have yet to meet

Whether in passing
Or if they should sit a spell
I see them, and wave hello

Esta vida se mueve tan rĂ¡pido,
This life moves far too quickly
To keep your eyes closed.

  2. so very very true. we rush so much that when we get to the end, we wonder where it went.

  12. Reminds me of the song by Alabama...

    I'm in a hurry to get things done
    Oh, I rush and rush until life's no fun
    All I really gotta do is live and die,
    But I'm in a hurry and don't know why...

    Love the photo!
