Wasted Time

A deep sorry filled my heart last night

I tried to review the recent events of my life.

I couldn’t recall but a few.

I was saddened to think that the few

memories I’ve had during recent days,

Would all soon just fade away to nothing.

Today, I have no unusual plans to think of.

How sad it is to think that this moment right now,

Will never be thought of again.

Today, very soon, today will be forever lost.

It is as if life has been just a series of significant memories

and all the time passed in between has never even existed at all.

Years of life held in a handful of dust.

Maybe today I’ll do something great that I will NEVER forget.

I feel better now. Today will not be forgotten!
