once upon a time

Here and now
Thinking about the folly of youthful indiscretion
Did we really believe we were invincible then?
Now, in these so called golden years of greyness

All the mistakes made and not a lot achieved.
Guess we accept the adage we did the best we could.

No gain in saying should have,
Maybe if, the point is - didn't.
Here and now only time matters,
Can't afford any ifs or should haves
No time left, just use today's reality.

We are upright and on the ground, not below it.
Easier to accept old time dreams
Lovers lost along the many trails
Letting our grievances lie in the dust
Whilst we talk and talk.
Sharing memories in the here.and now,
