Screen Saver Slide Show .....

Moments of their lives
flash across the screen.
Moments captured in time,
……. that are so precious.

Except for the fact
that I can’t go back……
and change the hands of time.

The essence of their youth
was captured…
frame by frame.
They are growing older……….
and no longer,
my babies.

For they are 7 and 10,
and I am 41.

The road has been long,
and I wish,
I could have done some things differently.

Like not drinking the elixer…
that took me from them,
so many times.

And even knowing that,
and being remorseful.
I can’t change …
what I have done in the past.

I wish,
I wouldn’t have been dealt
this alcoholic card deck
in life.

I wish,
I wouldn’t have been laid up in bed…..
with a hangover.

I missed parts of their beautiful youth….
with foggy eyes….
and that….
can never….
be….
recaptured.
