A Poem: Tissue Paper Ghosts

I absolutely love poetry. I can't remember a time when I didn't. A few minutes ago, I came across one that gave me goosebumps and made tears prick my eyes as I thought of the way time marches on, every moment fleeting as we do our chores, love our families, shove aside our emotions and worries when we can or just have to, and trudge through the decades and the roles we cloak ourselves in as we get older and older.

It's called Tissue Paper Ghosts and it's by a writer named Katie Ford Hall. I don't have permission to post it here, of course, so here's a link.
