WASTED YEARS THAT SIGH

WASTED YEARS THAT SIGH

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

Too soon old...too late smart. (Aren't we all?)

"
WASTED YEARS THAT SIGH    
         
I occupy this time and space
Without a goal to set my pace...
And so the days begin.
If ever I should take the time
To think about these days of mine,
Perhaps I'd make amends....

To those whose lives I've been a part
Who carry love within their heart
For such a one as I.
So many nights I lie awake
And am remiss for those I take
For granted...while I cry.

It seems that I am too soon old
And winter shrouds me with the cold
While time flies quickly by.
Those things left unattended here
Will wait for someone else to fear
The wasted years that sigh.
<<<<<<<<<<<<O>>>>>>>>>>>>

"too old too soon." I think this is a feeling many people share, except the young, who don't realize what's waiting for them. I find a lot of regrets in these lines, and judgments, such as "wasted years." Look at it this way: during those years the time was always now. In the future the time will be now. There is no time when it isn't now. Learn to appreciate it and let the regrets go into the past, where they belong.

from reading your work, Sharon...i can hardly imagine that you would take anyone for granted...
you care too much....and i feel that many of your regrets are probably unfounded, but come about because of your caring.
