RDP Monday: Evanescent

bush-16.02-2

Living in an evanescent world
Things come, things go
Bare branches burst into flower
In a month it will only be leaves
People come and people go
I noticed today
A car in our garage is not longer there
The owner is too old to drive
I go shopping alone
When we used to go together
Life changes constantly
I meet someone
I used to work with them
I saw them every day
They were part of my life
Why cannot I remember their name
When they remember mine
Thank goodness for modern science
computer developments
My mobile telephone knows it all
I just have to give it instructions
It never forgets
Unless I forget to tell it
what it should remember
