I read this poem on Facebook and it really touched my heart. I had such an amazing childhood- a huge backyard for whiffle ball games, a room of my own and parents that supported my love for horses and music. Gatherings with extended family were a huge part of my child, vacations by myself to my grandparents house in Wyoming, cousin sleepovers and of course family reunions.
I don’t know who wrote this poem but I hope they won’t mind that I share it with you. I think it could easily be part of a family reunion or heritage scrapbook or a touching tribute for a special person in your life.
But years roll on and i cannot go back,
whether I was born in a mansion or a shack.
I can start right now in the hour that’s here,
to do something more for the ones I hold dear.
And since time in its flight is traveling so fast,
I can’t spend it regretting that which is past.
But I’ll try to make tomorrow a happier day,
By doing my Good unto Others…Today.
