I’m watching today gallop into tomorrow . . .
I see today and tomorrow become yesterday. . .
if I knew I wouldn’t have blinked. . .
I should have savor the moments longer. . .
I should have saved my tears for today. . .
and laughed more when I had more teeth. . .
my tears wouldn’t be bitter with sorrow. . .
but sweet with memories. . .
if only I knew how fast yesterday and today traveled. . .
I would have live every moment with joy. . .
cherished my family unconditionally. . .
and given more of myself . . .
and said more I love you’s . . .
I would have over looked the petty stuff . . .
that now I can’t remember. . .
I wouldn’t have allowed those grudges . . .
to linger and become unforgiving. . .
the unspoken words lost in the silence. . .
