A need for the ghost of the past

"Back in my day"
     You said it so often,
While I always showed respect,
                 I didn't truly listen
I wonder what I missed,
    As I let my mind drift away,
That might be useful to me now,
                 That life is going awry.
What pearls of wisdom did you share?
    While I worried about that daily care.
Not thinking I'd end up here.
                  Could you whisper in my ear?
