despedida

How fast the years have fled,
as i look back…
The days have gone and memories in their stead
have left their tracks.

I stand upon the crossroads,
and i recall
The furious youth i’ve spent uncowed, unawed,
as now i stall…

I wish i could delay
my leaving here,
But since today must turn to yesterday,
i leave with tears.
