WE MAY NOT HAVE THE CHANCE TO AGAIN

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Oct 12, 2017

So many words left
unspoken,
Swirling round in 
your head,
You meant them but
yet didn't speak them;
You uttered some 
others instead.

Meanwhile, time journeys
on like a river,
It will rush, but 
then suddenly stall.
It can seem to drift
on forever,
Or pass as if nothing
at all.

You think that you
have a lifetime.
But lifetime is what?
Who can say?
For some it is years - 
sad and happy,
But for others it's
just one more day.

We all take so much
for granted,
Oh, one more day, 
we can wait,
But sometimes we 
just simply cannot,
Because one more
day is too late.

We must cherish 
the moments we're
given,
Not allow them to
wash down like
rain.
We must treasure 
those moments
we're given,
We may not have
the chance to again.
