So Quickly

Time passes so quickly

A minute

An hour

A day

A birthday

A lifetime.


Opportunities pass by fleetingly

An unused smile

An unsaid compliment

A missed kind word

An offer of love, unuttered.


A flash of underwear, in a public place

I wish I had smiled more

Held out my hand out, that was kept back in shyness

Used the stiffness that I held from you in embarrassment

Grasped that opportunity when it was offered.


You cannot go back, that moment has passed

Enjoy each moment to the full

You only live this day once

Tell them you love them before that time passes by too quickly.

Word blind in one eye, bad tempered and only a broken pencil to write with, I don't stand a chance!
