Those Days
What are those days?
Those days which
Have passed me by?
What memories each day
Does bring and leaves
An imprint upon my mind.

I sit and so wonder
If my past was worthwhile
Did I do the best I could?
For those I knew, did they?
Understand the way I lived

I look back to a time
When I thought,
That life was mapped
Like a game on a
Snakes and Ladders board.
From One to Ten,
Ten to Twenty...
And so on to a Hundred
These were the years
Of my life, through time.

Each stage of the game
Was a life, I imagined?
Would be played out by me
By travelling up the board
Hoping I land on a snake
And tumble back down
To start the game again!
Secretly, I thought,
I wanted to remain within
The Twenty to Thirty range....!

Not wanting to get old
But remain young and live
Forever in a happy refrain.
But alas time moves on
And so do I, into maturity
Which one is bound to do?
To a destiny which is final
I am lead to believe....!

But life goes on and with it
Every passing day we grow,
We remember our days gone by
Our Loves, hates, pleasures
And much more to return to fill
Our tiring old minds,
So let’s be thankful for our days
Those Days, those days....
Having but passed us by.
