life chugs along at breakneck speed…
do you ever find yourself
wanting to grab a moment
hug it to yourself
with all the fierceness you can muster
and not let go??
i know, i know
i’m getting older…
seeing it slip away,
evaporate into a swirling wisp of smoke
never to return
to quote a line from one of my own poems:
“life moves in only one direction
there’s no turning back for further inspection”
sometimes i wish that that wasn’t the case….
i know acceptance is the key
it’s all good
and knowing that we are not alone
as we negotiate
both the sunshine and the shadows
the sweet and the bitter….
that pretty much everyone on the planet
(lucky enough to make it this far)
has the same thoughts from time to time
and that’s just the way it is….
well, it’s comforting
