In the After

What somebody said –

And, oh how we laughed –

Was the turning point’

The point of no-return,

Looked only like so much

Dust on the highway;

Neither more nor less,

No more remarkable,

Than the rest.

How sad –

Or is it ? –

That we don’t see the before

Until we’re living

In the after.

    Dust on the highway

  3. why is it so hard to live in the moment? its the best way to be and yet we so often, as you say, dont relish how wonderful something was until long after it has passed
