As I sit and reflect upon my life I find I can't help but reminisce,
of a time I once lived long ago and which I now so greatly miss.
So many faces of friends long departed and countless events of which I enjoyed.
But what I now relive as mere fond old memories were once a daily routine I employed.
It was a time when I felt I knew exactly who I was, when I knew exactly where to go.
It was a time when I had ambitions to advance and many trophies lined up to show.
It was probably the last time I can clearly recall when my life felt on track.
And it was certainly the very last time that I never once looked back!
What I had was really special, maybe even the greatest moments I can claim.
Although I fear the saddest truth now faced is things will never be that great again...
