So much to do, so little time,
We cannot wait when we’re behind.
Anticipate life’s potential,
incoming tides, ever mindful
of the surgings of passing storms,
rip-tide currents and undertows.

The best laid plans, if such there be,
of mice and men, of you and me,
Castles of sand, or drifting clouds,
few stand for long, unlike our doubts.

And so each job we undertake
should advance us along our way.

Yet, don’t forget, there’s little time,
and we can’t wait. We’re still behind.

Love the title and the poem. This was a favorite saying of my dad and brought to my mind his voice saying these words. Thank you for this poem.

Very Happy
