Elegy

Then so the beauty of life lies not in its living–but in its dying.
Where we find solace in the splendor of regret.
Thus we must suffer gracefully, yet gladly, as we relive our memories.
And like them–sparkle, before we fade.

  1. Sparkle before we fade…..loved that line….I always hoped to live with no regrets…but that is just not completely possible….

    I liked this very much….
