Looking back, I wonder
About the year I lived
With every blunder.
Did I have more to give?

Looking back, I question
Whether I did enough.
In joy and depression
Did I do the right stuff?

Looking back, I ponder
Some choices that I made.
All the time I squandered
Was it all worth the trade?

Looking back, I conclude
What I thought, felt, and said
Has all been a prelude
To more that lies ahead.
