Sometimes I wonder, just where I am
How did I end up here?
I thought my eyes, open, along the way,
As I journeyed through more, than the half of my years
Other times, I wonder, what’s up next?
There must be more in this life to see
Or did I live it already, take it for granted,
When I was young, living easy, wild and carefree
In this moment, I reminisce, of just where I’ve been,
While reaching for memories of long ago
Melancholy grasps at the depth of my heart,
As these visions of then, slowly unfold
Of when life once was full with promise and hope
While my dreams were still in the make
The years ahead, more than ones that had passed
There was plenty of time, to make lifes mistakes
And mistakes I had made, I’m sure by the dozens
Some taught lessons, some left pain
There were times when a dozen, were made in one day
Some I still make, over and over again
What have I learned, as I examined my path?
What is it that I can say?
Not just lessons and pain, but dreams too, are still mine,
To accept and embrace for the rest of my days.
