The best is yet to be.......Quatrains

The subtle spell moonlight can cast.
A gentle form of witchery can,
conjure memories from the past.
Recalling how things used to be.

Review decisions you have made.
Which changed your life for good or ill.
A fleeting no stop cavalcade
of dreams you thought you could fulfil.

But circumstances can prevent
the best laid plans from coming true.
Things change as if by accident.
You do what fate intends you to.

Lost in a moonlit reverie.
You slowly come to recognise.
You are where you are meant to be
Although you had thought otherwise.

You can review but cannot change
the course of your life history.
There is no way to re-arrange.
Any part of your life story.

You must accept reality
and be content with what you’ve got
You can achieve serenity.
The past mayhap is best forgot.
