Each year slips by
faster and the length
of each year
I fear by old age each year
will become hours
become liquid memories
It’s interesting as one of the signs of the end of times narrated by the prophet sallahualahyi wa salam is that time would go quickly.
Just reaffirms for me.. why focus on the dunya when it’s just a fleeting moment
Maybe in old age the years begin to blur because there were so many of them. But I have the impression that memories become more valuable. A thoughtful post : )
Yes I like the liquid quality of memory…..very nice…
