A Requiem To Life

The gentle, cool breeze caressed past
Aromas of a thousand flowers tantalising thick and fast.
Frozen - I stood rooted, overwhelmed - aghast
Unable to perceive right from wrong
Oh! How long – Oh! How long
Whence the time would be forever lost.

Heavens came my way
But tides kept me astray
Alas! Such was their power.
A deluge, not a trickle or a shower.

How I now wish
The clock had stood still
I could’ve clasped those precious moments
Before my life just withered & ebbed away.

Now I stand far from myself
Look back and say
Where was I?
Where was my soul?
That beautiful, blessed day
When Heavens came my way.

    How time & opportunities await no one. When we have it, it all seems inconsequential. Having lost it, is it remorse that we feel? Whatever, a great lesson for us all.
