Wasted Years

Missed time and opportunities
Thatís the way it is
And when loved ones have gone
All those wasted years

You canít take time back
Once it has passed
Each moment gone by
Only memories will last

And when theyíre not there
Due to lessons not learned
Is the ignorance of past
What you have earned

And time stops for no one
No matter how hard you try
Until that fatal moment
When family and friends die

Then look back on your life
Is the memory what it is
Or is it just another
One of those wasted years
