Looking Back a Poem

Looking Back

Someone told me long ago

If you love something

Learn to let it go

Life is shorter than you think

Sometimes it’s great

Sometimes it stinks

You just can’t miss

What you’ve never had

And if you wait too long

That would be real sad

We are given things

They are taken away

It’s the game of life

We all must play

If you let life pass you by

You’ll someday stop

And wonder why?
