The Night

It’s just enormous,
The amount of life
You’ve lived if you’ve lived

For a few decades.
It may not seem so
Moment to moment,

But cast your mind back
To a random year
And let it fill out

The differences
Between then and now,
Hazy as they are.

It was a whole world,
Wasn’t it? A world
And then another,

Another before,
Another after,
Worlds to remember,

More worlds than you can
Ever remember,
Too large to recall.

If memories were
Stars, points of light, then
Your life was the night.
