Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Joaquin Phoenix didn’t walk the 77th Golden Globes red carpet with fiancee Rooney Mara. Why you might ask? Because he wanted to sweetly admire her from afar instead. When she realized he was staring at her, Mara giggled and beamed right back at him. Can this love story get any cuter? Talk about relationship goals.

Photographers captured the sweet moment. Phoenix covered his mouth while he gazed at his actress and fiancee. Mara, for those who don’t know, is the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” star. Mara wore a black lace Givenchy dress.

Mara wasn’t nominated for any awards this year, but she was previously nominated for best actress in a motion picture drama in 2012 and 2016 for her roles in “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and “Carol.”

This year, she accompanied her fiance to the awards show. Phoenix was nominated and won the category of best actor in a drama motion picture for his performance in “Joker.” During his acceptance speech, Phoenix grew emotion while he thanked Mara and wiped away tear.s
