Gift of wings

We have a short moment in time

A snapshot of measurement

Moments, day’s months and years

To make the most of

.

Each day lived in, Filled with doing

Sometimes silence and peace

Pondering time, soaking up dreams

Making plans for the future

.

Regrets left behind, Memories are made

Living for the now not the past

Laughing enjoying each day

Future is inevitable not planned

.

You filled my life with adventures

Showered me with kindness

Offered me love, shared yourself

You lifted my grief, showed me life

.

I live in the moment,

I soar with contentment

I fly free with

This gift of wings

Chronic Regrets

I should not look back

leave the past behind me

Little things niggle

That I can’t let go

The child I missed time with

The loves that I’ve lost

Homes that have gone

Moments that were missed

Kisses now a dream

No hand to hold

I should write them down

Burn the ash and bury

Leave the regrets

Deep in the ground

And make space

To embrace the now

Have empty arms to receive

New love, adventures

Time ticks on

No more chronic regrets.
