I've been wondering of late,just where
it all has gone,so many years to dwell

Not only are my years mostly spent, but
with them the means of being content

It isn't the way I hoped it would be, I've
lived life too fast and too free

Frittered away  is my health,wealth,and
dreams, scattered like a days sunbeams

Like best laid plans with no reason or
rhyme,  played out in the winds of time

No matter how many lessons we learn
we still end up with just the yearn

But that's not bad,longing is better than
nothing, so don't be too sad

Time flies. As you so well expressed life is too short to do all we wanted. At some point, it's best just to lay back and enjoy the memories.

On one level, this does make me very sad, Eileen. Of late, I, too have been having almost "panic attacks" from the sense of "too little, too late" and a brooding sense of my own mortality. Yet, as you seem to intimate, however much or little time we were to have 'twould be ever thus. The journey is so much more important than the arrival at the end of the day; we are restless spirits and it's ALL in the anticipation, I think. Once we get to where we want to be, inevitably we wanna be some place else! Perhaps contentment comes with this acceptance - and the knowledge that, ultimately, we shall one day be "home" - whether that be an actual location or a state of being. Honest and moving - and very relateable! We always see the universe in your grains of sands and eternity in an hour in your ever-youthful words. xx

Eileen, Life does go by so fast, Like a flash! Just yesterday I was a kid and now I have a teen in highschool. I think we all yearn for something more and yes longing is better than nothing. When we stop longing we stop living... Honest truth in your words that I can relate to very well, Very touching! Take care,~Chessly

Eileen, regardless of how hard we endeavor to make life a philosophical experience, it never was meant to be. It is a spiritual journey in our frail human bodies. Our flesh aches, yearns and withers. Our soul marches on to the harmony of divine providence. I bid you joy, peace and love my dear friend. Jon Michael

Everyone hears this, Eileen,
you speak for all the honest truth,
the reality that bites but can be faced
bravely as you face it in that uplifting last phrase.

You are a wondrous poet- and you keep on giving.
May each new day bring surprises- worth waiting for.

Plans are made to be broken and it is no crime to leave some unfulfilled. Time is finite and no one can do it all. The key is to enjoy what you do. Patrick

I think you express wise words with regards to a universal and timeless theme of this world/life, Eileen. Thank you. Love and best wishes to you,

Eileen, I sometimes wonder if we confuse 'regrets' with 'retrospect'...I think back to some of my massive screw-ups; too numerous to list here, but with better planning, clearer thinking and lots of common sense I could have achieved better results. Regrets? Very few, but in retrospect I am better experienced should the opportunity come for me to do that same thing again...You have written something we all think about, nicely done.

We all sadly end up 'played out in the winds of time' and I guess all we can do is attempt to savor whatever time we have left.

Ah, we all more or less have those thoughts when we start creeping into the last days. I've spent much of my time writing similar posts. It goes with the territory. I personally don't like the setup, this birthing and dying, and we really don't give it that much thought until we . . . er . . . start looking around and seeing much, much more than we really wanted to see.
