My Regrets


Whenever you lose someone you cared for
You have those lingering regrets.
You wish you could hug them or kiss them or talk to them
I don't want to have those regrets any longer
I want to make up all the time we lost with each other
I have many regrets of days gone by
But the biggest regret yet was leaving you behind
Not knowing the things you were going through
At that time, pains me still today.
I regret not telling you then how I truly felt
How you made me feel and how you touched my heart
And I never forgot the kindness you showed me
You were my shining light, my rainbow after the rain
You gave me the courage to go out in the world
Make my own way in life and showed me what my life could be
For that I was truly grateful
I regret getting into relationships to try to fill a void in my heart only you could fill
But by having those relationships made me crave you even more
I regret those missing years from our life which we could have spent together
Living, laughing and loving each other unconditionally
Now I have the chance to erase those regrets from the past
Now my biggest regret is in the past and we are together at last

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
