Saying Goodbye

Part IX

If We Had More Time

written by: Doug Stanfield (Hemmingplay)



Is there a lament more useless?

If, only… if, if only…

If wishes were horses,

Then beggars would ride.
Only when it’s too late to

do what should have been done

all along.

We breathe out,

“If only there was more time…”

The one thing we can

be counted on
to do on time
Is wait until it’s too late…
