Lamenting
the
"Good Ol' Days"


   January 1983

 
The past is gone
    The future dim
We lament
    What could have been!
 
 As the rain
     Blows in wind
We yearn the sun
     That could have been!
 
Time wears away
    As the rain
That pounds and drips
    Against the pane ...
 
What could have been!
    Dare we say --
Will be the 'morrow
    Which is today?

 Thought:

"Take therefore no though for the morrow:
     for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself.
 Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
"
              St. Matthew 6:34  (KJV)
