Poem: ' We Won't Have This Day Again' ( SkyWatchFriday below this )



~~~


We Won’t Have This Day Again


The summer days are swiftly passing.
Another fall will soon be here.
Winter enters, with a flurry,
and soon is gone - another year!

As we age, the years seem shorter.
In a flash, the days go by.
We come to know our limitations -
if not all the reasons why!

We pick and choose our undertakings…
the things we do from day to day.
We try to fill the empty spaces,
of what we’ve missed along the way.

We know, fully, time is fleeting,
with no way to reign it in!
We take each day and what it offers!
We won’t have this day again!

I always enjoy your poems so much, dear Junie. The words in this one are so poignant because as we get older, the days certainly do seem to fly by and if we don't take time to enjoy each day as it comes, as you say, we won't have this day again! Beautiful! xoxo
