Lost Chances


For those who never knew me.
The time has passed so swiftly.
The years seem a blur to my weary mind.

To those who know the history.
The truth is not a mystery.
The illusion silently withered on vine.

My days are short in number.
Gone are the days of summer.
Lost is my chance once young and so brave.

Taste not the fruit of sorrow.
Live now not for tomorrow.
A bitter seed harvest sprouts weeds on the grave.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
