Looking back/Look forward

in #actifit9 months ago

It seems like only yesterday,
that I had my first pay check,
but I have been working for years.
It seems like only yesterday,
I could stay up till 4 in the morning,
but today, I am beat by 12.
It seems like only yesterday,
I could wear heels and walk the day,
but today, I worry about my knees.
It seems like only yesterday,
My parents' hair were dark,
but today, their hair is gray.
It seems like only yesterday,
My grandma, aunty and uncle were still around,
but they have passed away along the way,
It seems like only yesterday,
I couldn't care less about my health and future,
but today, I could not not care about them.
It seems like only yesterday,
I could sew all day,
but today, I could only manage maybe an hour.
It seems like only yesterday,
my nephews were born,
but today, they are as tall as their mother,
It seems like only yesterday,
I had all the energy in the world,
But today, all I want is to rest whenever I can.
I sometimes wonder how much have I missed,
and how much time has gone,
that makes me cherish today even more.

Yes it is sad but true. I can't help but worry for many things as time tick tocks away but we must remember to cherish every second of every day.

I understand! It's not that I do less though, it's that more of what I do is in my head. And of course posting on steem takes a lot of time.
Great poem.
