Wondering

As I sit here

Wondering where my life went

I see the two of you.

Young and in love

So much like me and her.

Ignorant

Of everything but each other,

Thinking

It will last forever.

At some point

You will realise

It won't.

Somehow,

Somewhere,

It will end,

And,

Willingly or not,

You will give her up,

To someone else

Or to herself.

You cannot decide when, my friend

So cherish the time you have,

For it could be your last.

And then you will sit here

In my place

Wondering where your life went.
