Mea Maxima Culpa


I am sorry for what I did and did not do
I am sorry for what I said and did not say

If I could undo what I did I would
If I could not say what I said I would

If I could do what I should have done I would
If I could say what I should have said I would

I almost did what I should have done
I almost said what I should have said

I thought there would be a better time and place
I thought we had world enough and time

I was wrong
Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
