Reflections on Life


It wasn’t meant to be like this, when I first started out.

Excitement and future promise, was what life was all about.

Now as my time grows shorter, I cherish every day.

Though I still sometimes reflect, on where I went astray.

I had such grandiose plans, of things I would achieve.

That I have done so few of them, is still hard to now believe.

Have I made a difference, stood out from all the rest,

I would like to think in all I’ve done, at least I tried my best.

My dealings were always honest, well except for one or two,

And the love and support of family, has always seen me through.

Why don’t we see a coming mistake, until it is too late,

Do we really have control, or are we guided just by fate.

As I sit and contemplate, of things and time gone past,

I worry that my life, is rushing on so fast.

I feel that I must hurry, do things I haven’t done,

And start each day with a joyous welcome, of the morning sun.

For I know that if I delay, tomorrow I’ll be sad,

For wasting precious time, that yesterday I had.

So I can’t sit here morosely, debating when and how,

I have to mow the lawn, and I have to do it NOW!
