Delayed Success

Like old pain
Is soon forgotten 
When memories remain

Of times spent in the open
Of long lonely miles 
Or better still 
In the comfort of others 
With random smiles 

What's done is done
In the past it stays 
Except when it's needed 
to remind us of days 
When choices made 
Were to toil a little longer 
and with the task to stay
Rather than to succumb
to the ease of the path nearly made 

Disappointment still lingers 
The better result never seen
But it's an illusion 
of someone you've never been

Better to rejoice in that 
what is done 
For the past is the past 
and can never be re-run ..
