There Were Almost TearsTo Jonathan Penton's previous piece     PlumsTo Jonathan Penton's next piece

at some point
we stopped counting
all the possibilities left open to us

and began to consider
upon those moments past

good times we've had
wild things we've done
promises that we've never kept

And life
which we treated with such carelessness then
becomes worth more to us
although we live it
less and less
each day
