Time

This is my contribution to the 100 wood meme, on Velvet Verbosity.

I never really thought about it. I always had more than enough. It was my friend. I’d heard people talk about it slipping away, and them never having fully enjoyed it. I thought they were overemotional, that surely they hadn’t missed all they implied. I know differently now.

There are so many things I wish I’d done, things that are lost to me now. So many people I’d love to have one more conversation with. Things I’d love to pass along to help others understand so that they wouldn’t find themselves in my place. If I only had the time…

Well said. A lovely 100 Word Challenge response. And oh, so real.

"if only I had the time". Bittersweet regret. My mother has always said that she commits her life to living without regret. You've captured well that feeling here. Thank you.

Thank you, both and thanks for the promts.

My mom is the same way. I know we all have something we regret, or would do differently, but the way she talks it's her whole life! It's sad.

So very true and so well written. When we are young - we always think that there is enough time for everything. One more conversation - what would we all give for that opportunity?
