One Shot

When did I get so old

and how did I not notice,

why was I not told

by those who were closest.

How did I not realise

that life was passing me by

and I was moving closer

to the day I will die.

When I was younger

time didn’t mean a thing

but now I count the chimes

when the church bells ring.

Why did I not cherish

my life from the start

instead of waiting for

my body to fall apart.

Now it’s too late for

what I want to do,

I had one shot at this life

which I unfortunately blew.
