Because I used to and
now the years have gone by
and some of them without me.
And my passions have drifted
or heightened and either way
they have my attention.
Because there are some who don’t
mind and will meet me where I am.
And those who simply like the right now
no matter what the right now holds
and there is danger in going back, remember?
And what is there ahead if our feet slip now
because we refused to see where we stand?
