Such is Life …

When I was a child

Forever was something

I thought about

Or even considered


Forever to a child

Is the night before


The month of their


Counting down for the

last day of school


Once we reach that

‘hump’ in our lives

When there are more

days past than days

remaining to experience

Forever takes on a

Whole new meaning

Forever is much too short


Most of us would do what

We could to turn back time

Perhaps for a complete do-over

To right old wrongs

To take that different road

If only…


We can’t go back

We have to look forward

And …

Do the best with what time remains

No regrets…

No excuses…

Begin each day looking for

A new adventure …

    I certainly can identify. But at times, the hours drag and minutes flash by in seconds. THAT I can’t figure out.
