The Fates

I’m sipping my red wine

Slipping back through time

Memories of a life well-lived

No regrets, but I miss those days

The past is gone and one cannot dwell

On what might have been

But rather I learn through loss

And look forward with hope

A life I could never have imagined

Complete in every way

And lived every single day


Im not where I thought Id be

But wisdom extracts a price

And when you roll the dice

And follow the fates

Life takes its course

And your future awaits

The key is gratitude

Having learned the lessons

That they threw at you

The cackling laughter

Of the Fates in their glee

And yet without them

I simply couldn’t see

And the wheel of life

Turns, turns, turns

And eventually

Arrives back where it started
