I heard a gentle tapping
But maybe I was wrong.
Soon I was distracted
By a melancholy song.

I felt a gentle breeze
Mild, warm and meek.
But I chose to ignore it
And turned the other cheek.

I saw a gentle smile
On a stranger whom I passed.
I thought of smiling back
But the feeling didn’t last.

I stood before my Lord.
“Where were You all my days?”
And suddenly I knew
I’d lived life in a haze.

I remembered gentle tapping,
The gentle breeze and gentle smile
And knew He’d been with me
At my side all the while.

Just brings a smile doesn't it?
Very nice.

a lovely sentiment.....looking back we all know the mistakes we made in life

------------------
i never call a poem "nice" or such,
for that would not be saying much

Sally - I hoped it would!

elvira - always easier to look back and see them, rather than at the time, right?

Thanks to both for reading and commenting.
