As I Reflect

‘Tis now as I reflect this autumn morn so deep in thought of life’s dulcet refrain whose rhythm ever changes without warn; I query… have I always lived my life in vain? I’ve touched the tender flowers of the spring, and wetted longing lips with summer wine; my lips have kissed and made the bluebird sing, but wonder… have I always lived my life benign? Have I been chasing rainbows all along while living life based on my foolish dreams? Just like the lyrics of a country song, my life is built on shifting sand… or so it seems. But what if I could live my life anew? …I think perhaps the same things I would do. April 18, 2020

Our imagination can bring such fantasies to mind, but fantasies are just fantasies, not reality. I would not change anything in my life either John' Blessings, Jennifer.

Sometimes we linger in what could have been. This is filled with tenderness, that sweet ache and reflection. You are right where you are supposed to be, my dear sweet friend. Hugs, Brandy

This has such universal appeal - I think we all ponder those questions - and I agree, I would still do (most) things the same (and thank you for commenting on my potd!)
