“Missed Days” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Missed Days”

By Ashley O’Hare

A decade

brings more changes

than the number of candles

flickering on my birthday cake.

I now look at my future

with a frown on my face-

how could I let

the sunshine fade?

Each year passes

with an ache

in my bones-

I do not want to stay alone.

My hopes and my fears;

I have held them dear.

Now I cannot

tell them apart.

I’ve been entranced

by the past ten years,

I missed the day

I began the next one.
