Regret

One day
I’ll forget
The things
I regret

Past events
That could have been
But didn’t turn out
The way I’d seen

Hopes and dreams
I’ve had them all
Some were big
Some were small

Unanswered prayers
I’ve had a few
It’s too late now
They’re overdue

Looking back
Makes no difference
That cannot change
My present existence

Happiness
Doesn’t live in the past
It needs a heart
Beating fast

But letting go
And moving on
Requires waiting
Until the pain is gone

The joy we shared
Those times together
Memories
I’ll have forever

Grief and love
Both share my heart
Grief will go
But love will never part
