The setting sun pulls another day over the horizon,
Another day that we will never again lay eyes on.
How we see this depends on how this day we stood,
Some are sad to see it go others glad itís gone for good.

Perhaps I think too much about the moments that are lost,
How I let them slip away regardless of the cost.
Time is like a river disappearing in thin air,
As it flows by you have one chance and then it isnít there.

As sand flows though an hourglass, our lives are passing by,
We stand and watch it flow away and never question why.
If I could make a special wish, and knew that it would be,
I would want to make the most of every opportunity.

Jack Roberts Ė October 24 2002

Yes , I agree, I read somewhere that as we grow older our regrets in life are more for the things we didn't do than for those we did do. - Vic

on my fridge - a poem, author unknown, about another day out of your life
"...don't regret the price you paid for it." Moments wasted, moments lost
but for the repercussions - this is a very thought provoking piece.
