Retrospective Reflections

I found myself looking in the rear-view mirror
Examining unfulfilled dreams from long ago
Dancing with the flowing fates of what-ifs
Imagining other paths and another life
The plans and visions of youth gone awry
My retrospective reflections have me thinking
Did I know back then what was best for me?
Have I missed something important?
My conclusion comes with a smile
If I’m not happy with today, I can change tomorrow
But yesterday has left me with memories
It is never too late for more dreams
But remorse and sadness waste the time
I could be spending catching my magic
And enjoying that which I already have
