Swift days, that up till now have flown
Like time unheeded in an eerie dream,
I reckoned years; but little did they seem
More than numerals, somehow grown
Into a vacuum known as Years. Now comes
The awed sense of Time's unpitying pace.
Each day grows shorter, faster now the race
To total life; draw Something as its sum.
Like one in danger, suddenly aroused,
Apprehension stalks behind, before:
Through all there lurks the sense of Nevermore.
Nothing abides, though all for its day is housed.
Beloved, amidst this passingness of Life,
We alone stand, eternal man and wife.
