When You Were Nineteen

You say today, with a heavy heart
You are a has been,
Who's only nineteen.

But wait awhile and cast a glance,
To what you are and what you will be.

Life is short, life is tough,
But the journey is long and wondrous.

A long road awaits you today.
With its twists and turns, to keep boredom at bay.

You have a long way to go.
Many a people to meet.
Many a heart to touch.

Amongst the woods, shall peek the moonlight
Take a minute and be enthralled
The beauty of life is lived only once.

The barometer of success is not by convention
It is,
By love,
By joy,
By music,
By flowers,
By thoughts.

And no one but you is a success for yourself.

The days today shall come to you tomorrow.
To cherish a bygone era.

Many a tear, many a smile shall ensue.
As the pages turn by time.

The hearts you touched shall remember you fondly.
The tears betraying their love.

The sights and sounds that come your way, are manifold
Be sure they don't remain untold.
And when the mind stops wandering,
Come back and realize.

You are not a used up has been...

Your are only nineteen...
