You Will Never Be Again What You Were


YOU WILL NEVER BE AGAIN WHAT YOU WERE

You will never be again
What you were-
It's lost
It will never come back,
The Youth the Hope
And you will never have a chance again to be
All that you so much wanted to be
And were not in your youth-
Others had Youth as you did not
They had love and adventure and a kind of freedom and laughter
You will never know-
You will never be again what you were
And you will never be
What you never were
And so much wanted to be-
You will be only less than what you are now-
So love what you are and what you can be still-
What is lost and what was not
Will never be for you-
Old man- Sing this song in happiness
It is your only truth-

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
