REGRET

A Poem by Carrie Montgomery
"

for my very first love...hope you found a better place!!

"

 

 

I keep thinking of that day when I saw you last,

a bitter-sweet conversation with a love from the past

It hurts so much, looking back on that day

Oh, how I wish I’d had nothing to say!

Why couldn’t I have just taken you in?

The sound of your voice, the sun on your skin

Why didn’t I study the details of your face-

and press them upon my memory, never to be erased?

I dwell on our last conversation

how I blamed it all on you without hesitation

you just smiled in your knowing way

you took my hand and I heard you say:

"you taught me how to live and taught me how to love

I suffered when you left and I have paid my dues.

I have let it all go and so should you"

As you walked away, I trembled inside

I resented you and your happiness without me by your side

I went home alone and had a good cry

how was I to know that you would soon die?

My anger and my bitterness I should have set aside

but instead I clung to my foolish, selfish pride

now your 're gone and my regret is strong

how differently I wish that talk had gone!

I should have spoken of our good times

 should have forgiven you of your "crimes"

I wish I had told you that I’d learned from you too

I wouldn’t know about REAL love,

if it hadn’t been for you

I keep thinking of that day when I saw you last

wishing, WISHING I could change the past
