Dear you, head bowed,

Intimate with only your phone-

Screen. Your Grandmother's

Tremors you do not see, nor do you

Realize that Time is a river that

Always runs.

Critical years are slipping by:

Tik-Tok, Tik-Tok, while you are lost in the


O' dear you, a day will come when you look up and know that you can

Never go home again.
