‘Once’…a word belonging to the past…

‘Once’, a word that points to things before,

gone, better, or not as relevant to now.

‘Once’ you were younger, thinner, happier, wealthier and fearless,

yet these thoughts come and go accompanied still by you.

Feelings, wants and expectations change but deep within the soul

your person waits for life to be revealed.

When ‘once’ turns slowly to now, congruity is ready to begin.                     Flower5

But you dodge, you weave, you search for ‘once’ too often, perhaps,

like an old friend, a familiar place.

And yet, the answer lies before you,

transparent for all who are brave enough to look.

As ‘once’ fades, the now illuminates your life.
