Days Fade Away

So many memories
seem to lose hold
timeless the ventures
moments so cold.
Days begin changing
as weeks multiply
as time is displaying
a seasons lullaby.
Things we've seen
as we may remember
become the essence
of a burning ember.
Life as a memoir
a certain time's hue
the days we remember
that fade from view.
They leave in place
a heartfelt emotion
a moment of winter
with snow as an ocean.
We might even see
within our mind's eye
clouds up above us
in a wintertime sky.
The change of dates
shows Christmas gone
leaving in their place
new days to dawn.
Pages begin flipping
as a book on display
a seasons recollection
as days fade away.
