it passes by like a breeze

I am feeling really melancholy these days.
thoughts come to me, profound, but there is no one to share.

I think about life and my parents and it was like it was a dream.
I was a foolish person. I thought my life with them was forever.
now it has vanished, vanished into thin air. I am so confused.

life passes like a breeze.
