I liked the message behind this piece. It reminds us all that we must live for every day, as tomorrow is never guaranteed. A well written piece, I enjoyed reading it.

A poem of wisdom- caution-not to look back to live forward with the knowledge gained living onward day to day. I could tell this is an old soul (good place) speaking forth. Good job.

Excellent poem and excellent reminder to each of us to stop grousing about the petty things and be grateful we woke up this morning and (so far) we're still breathing this very moment. especially poignant now as we top off 136,000 deaths in the U.S.A. from Covid. Nobody ever lay on their death bed and muttered "I wish I'd complained more...."!!!!--- These days, when I lose patience or let myself get down I shake it off and say to myself "Well, there's five minutes of my life I'll never get back!"---Karenina

Nice one jaybird and you're right, because if we don't
Enjoy all moments of each day,
we never get those moments back to redo.I learnt long ago to only face life - one day at a time.
cheers

I can relate to your message because my dad was born in 1921, and I'm approaching the completion of my 76th trip around the sun. I've had some of the same thoughts you have packaged so well in your poem. I hope you will keep lighting the way for us youngsters.

I really enjoyed the positivity of the message of your poem. There is no doubt that time is running out, Instead rueing the loss of time we could use it to write a rhyme. Your poem rhymed, made sense, was spiritual, and touched me emotionally. Very nice job.

Indeed, time's running out; enjoyed your wonderful/meaningful poem in excellent rhymes; it's said that, "The way we spend our time, defines who we are." Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

Love the message of the poem and even more the message of a 95 year old man still pursuing his dream. You sir are an inspiration. The poem's opening line is indeed a reminder to those on the wrong side of seventy.
Well done Jaybird and please keep writing.

So often people will try to relive the past or they will try to live the day to come and miss the beauty of the moments they are living in the present.

There is so much meaning in your words, we can never get time back except in our memory like your poem states. "Enjoy all moments of each day" is a line of wisdom that gives the reader much to think about. You have a smooth flow of lines and rhyming words.
