I wrote this poem in 2003, reflecting about my sons and how quickly time had slipped away. Then, in 2009, after my husband Marty passed ~ this poem took on a deeper meaning. It has been revised to be reflective of my thoughts of today. Even though the essence of this poem is one of regret, I now understand that one should stay in the present moment because, truthfully, that is all we have! “What you are is what you have been. What you’ll be is what you do now.” – Buddha
