THE LOST CHANCES
Whenever I am starting out
Upon a fresh new year,
I always stop to think about
The one no longer here.
The year thats dead, I travel back
And let my memory run
In contemplation through the stack
Of things I could have done.
I check the deeds I meant to do
With those I did, and find
That I neglected quite a few
Real chances to be kind.
I learned the words that I meant to say
To comfort and to cheer,
And yet postponed them for a day.
I didn't speak that year.
And then to my disgrace I find
That had I paused to smile
And do those little actions kind
I'd not have lost a mile.
I learn now that the chance is gone,
That I have missed a lot,
For all those deeds I could have done
As eaisly as not.
