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

What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
