Everything Fades

Memories fade without a trace
Time fades into no place
Thought fade to far away
Beauty fades to yesterday
All colors fade to grey
Words all fade whispers far away
Dates and events slip your mind
Times and places are hard to find
As you get older, your life fades to grey
And there's nothing you can do or say
Try to hold on to these fading things
For soon they will become nothing
