“What you are is what you have been. What you’ll be is what you do now.” – Buddha
I wrote this poem in 2003, reflecting about my sons and how quickly time had slipped away. Then, in 2009, after my husband Marty passed ~ this poem took on a deeper meaning. It has been revised to be reflective of my thoughts of today. Even though the essence of this poem is one of regret, I now understand that one should stay in the present moment because, truthfully, that is all we have!
