Thinking To Back When
By Don Ray Williams

Do you ever spend any time, thinking to back when?
When you were younger, more energetic, healthier and then,
Something jolts you to the present, and what you find today,
Is one that’s older, more lethargic, somewhat infirm and grey.
What happened to all those years, that were between then and now?
Where did they go? How did they slip by so fast? Really I ask you, HOW?
Some say if I’d done this or I’d done that, I know things would be better.
For me, I say live for today and don’t be a regretter.
Hindsight is 20/20, I have often heard it said,
So put off worrying about the past until the day after you’re dead.
I spend very little time, thinking to back then,
I think only of the future, and when asked about activities, I just say “When”?
