Finally Awake


Another year of school comes to a close for you.

And where was I?

A whole year passed by before I could even focus properly.

This time escaped me; slipped through my fingers.

Futile is my lament or attempt to reset the clock.

Futile is my attempt to be there for you when I wasn't.

But I am now awake.

Determined to live in the present.

Reb Noson says somewhere that living in the present is a tikkun for the past and the future!

Thanks for the most excellent poem, ASJ!
