Heather Burns

In Retrospect

Being caught off guard
not knowing what to do

In retrospect

Moments as such are
very few

In retrospect

Not knowing what to say
moments as such

Hardly comes one's way.

    When we think of our past sometimes it happens that we desire to put the clock back and undo something but we are helpless.
