Lamenting the "Good Ol' Days"

The past is gone
    The future dim
We lament
    What could have been!

As the rain
     Blows in wind
We yearn the sun
     That could have been!

Time wears away
    As the rain
That pounds and drips
    Against the pane ...

What could have been!
    Dare we say --
Will be the 'morrow
    Which is today?

© January 1983, S. K. Smith

At least that is what I got out of this write...Ed & Rufuz (w00f)
