Rewinding Life

Days drag on

yet years fly by

Changes are gradual,

but in the blink of an eye,

we become  unrecognizable

to the world, to ourselves

The plans we made,

into our minds we delve

Stepping off the original path

an unexpected life unfolds

The regrets we have,

Our broken heart holds

We dream through the day

and fret through the night

We wish to go back,

change what we can

We hope for more time,

To get back to our plan

We wither away in disbelief

no more plans, no more time, 

…. just grief
