Every "first" is sweet,

Every "last" is bitter.

Though Life may contain

Many "firsts"

And many "lasts,"

Those "in-betweens"

That outnumber what is left,

Are forgotten

And put to rest

Without another thought,

Or passing glanceā€¦

This must be stopped,

For Life contains

Many "firsts"

And many "lasts,"

But the far more abundant


Are only a blur

When looked back upon.

Life is filled with the


The Bittersweet.
