Not sure what sparked my reflective mood this morning...maybe it was a picture of me, that Lesley took last night, when I returned from football training with me wearing a hoodie. I have got to admit that it was not the most flattering picture. I guess it got me thinking that the time for comfortably wearing hoodies has past me by...
So today’s poem is a reflection on life...the picture above shows four generations of my family. My grandma, my mum, me and Emily. (Matthew doesn’t like his image on social media!)
What if we could turn back the clock?
Live our life with lessons learnt
Fulfil dreams that passed us by
Appreciate fully earth and sky
What if we could be that boy again?
Living free, no cares in the world
Exciting experiences fresh and new
No predication, an innocent view
What if we could be that young man again?
Full of energy, passion and desire
For a future of endless possibilities
Devoid of debilitating responsibilities
What if we could be that new husband again?
With limitless, boundless love to share
To build a beautiful family life
Full of precious moments and little strife
What if we could be that new dad again?
Holding the first born in our arms
Catching our baby start to walk
Utter the first words, begin to talk
What if we could have that career again?
Full of new experiences, highs and lows
Promotions aplenty that made us proud
The comfortable life that it allowed
What if we could look forward to all that lies before us?
Appreciate every single moment
As though it were sitting in the past
Imagining this very second was the last.
