Was it really so easy to just forget?
Did we never think we’d ever regret?
We knew that time would not wait.
But yet we still chose to hesitate.
The years just flew by and by,
We let our youth and drive die.
Was it laziness or mere convention
that made us stop paying attention?
Whatever it was, we were wrong,
We should never have taken so long.
We didn’t just miss out on an opportunity.
We foolishly bet our lives on eternity.
