Days Long Gone Away

Days Long Gone Away

from the back seat window
of the car in front of me
a small hand appears
dangling a toy of some sort
and suddenly I am kissed
by memories of younger days
days long gone away
and remembering fondly
I wonder
had I known then
what I know now
would I have treasured them
as the precious gifts they were
these moments in my memories

as the light turns green
and I return to the present
another thought enters my mind
am I treating these moments
as the treasure that they are
for one day
some day
they too will be but memories
of days long gone away
