Things Missed Along the Way
Lately I’m given to daydreaming,
lost to the world as it spins.
Revisiting yesterdays, where memories are teeming,
be it climbing trees or barking my shins.
Grasping a moment of silence to drift
to when looking into a mirror shown youth...
dissipated and aging, uncontrollably swift,
wrinkled reflections seem woefully uncouth.
Did I sop up the gravy that life seemed to offer
or did I blink and miss the lessons, so sage?
Time seared the joy that was stashed in my coffer
leaving singed, frayed tintypes of tottering age.
