There is a time when we start to grow old
We realize the value of every little moment
Either reflect with regret what came to pass
Or embrace with joy what the future holds

For those of us filled with regret I say this
All your bitterness will not change the past
Let go and forgive and leave it all behind
And live this beautiful today to its fullest

For at the end we all finish the same way
And life already has so much toil and pain
No need to create more of it ourselves

Find joy in the gift that is your life today
