The many places I have been
And countless faces I have seen,
The many tales to be told,
Into the universe, they unfold.
It’s all a passing show,
Some of it colorful and bold,
Some of it dull and meek,
It’s meaning I do seek.
Now that life has slowed
And I have time to reflect,
Hindsight and wisdom grow,
In this garden of regret.
