Lost Years

For the stories untold

for the songs unsung

for the lives untouched

for the talents untapped;

the waste of a lifetime

I weep.


For the errands not run

the stones not turned

the words not said

the mile not covered;

the neglect of opportunities

i weep.


For the seeds not sown

crops not watered

fields not cultivated

labour not expended:

the unprofitability of service

i weep.


For all the lost moments

the lost minutes

the lost days

the lost years…..

  1. Well – lost years are sad though. But what counts most is – moving on. Moving forward.

    No matter what.

    Well done.
