A Dream

Another year has passed

You sigh, "Where have they gone?"

Only yesterday, you dreamed of what may be

Now, the dreams fade

Only the memories real

Then deep within a small voice asks

Do you not understand? Life is the dream.

What we choose to do with the moments

Creates not only the memories but also the dreams.

Go forth and live

Seize the moments like precious diamonds

For the lights that sparkle and glitter

Reflect your future and what still is to come

Comments: As I age, I often think about the bigger issues. Going through midlife, I use to sometimes ask myself "What if..." questions. As I move deeper into my spiritual journey, I realize how foolish those questions are. We cannot change the past. We have no assured future. We only have the moment guaranteed. Why not use it wisely?
