Time passes and our thoughts grow old
Life’s patterns are not edged in gold
Cycles begin and others break
Not everything’s a piece of cake.
But should one harp back to the past?
Life’s happening now – it speeds so fast
Some days my feet don’t touch the ground
Choices to be made abound!
Experience is a two-edged sword
It means our playing field is broad
But beyond the pitch the unknown beckons
Our life can really change – in seconds!
Perhaps it’s best to stare ahead
And by our instincts to be led
Into the future steer our prow
And live life fully in the now!
