Impermanent Youth

Do I remain in people’s thoughts
As they remain in mine?
Or am I on the pile of things
They gladly left behind?

Do I appear in people’s dreams
As they appear in mine?
Or have I turned to shadow-play
From man to just mankind?

Do I reside in people’s hearts
As they reside in mine?
Or do I start to disappear
Grow dimmer with each passing year
And fade away till memories clear
For all the rest of time?
