Treasure Island

gershon hepner

(5 3 38 / leipzig)

doors I never close

Doors I never close
cause millions of regrets,
like yesteryears whose snows
no melting heart forgets.
A never-opened door
resembles tears unshed
which cannot fall before
the book of life is read.

    The things we regret in life are the chances never taken -(the doors left unopened) . Wonderful, short and to the point - very powerful little poem

    This poem has music, meaning, structure and metaphors - what I would call perfect. Ten. A favourite. (Report) Reply

    Very gentle work gershon. I think many will relate, I always try to limit the regrets, but it takes stupidity or guts, I am not sure which. 10 from sleepy Tai (Report) Reply
