Should Haves

If I could see with morning eyes
The glow upon your skin
If I could bring back all those things
You made me feel within
If I could whisper one more time
Softly in your ear
Or tell you all I should have said
While I had you near
If I could have seen right then
That you would go away
I would have given anything
Just to make you stay
I would have said those three words
No matter what the cost
But now my chance has ended
And those moments all are lost
I should have learned my lesson
And loved you from the start
Now you are gone and I’m left
With “should haves” and my broken heart

(Just something that came to me at work last night, not reflective of my present mood)

Ruth, sounds like something I could've written. I should have told him when he was here, but I didn't. No broken heart, but plenty of regret over moments lost.

It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Your talent is superb, being able to just sit down with pen in hand and write like that at work.

Tara...I'm glad you had the courage to say it if not in person, thank you

Peter...you remain one of my biggest fans, thanks. I find I need to write when the words come, no matter where that might be

Dark Angel, Seymore and Pepper...thank you very much

Sunshine...I couldn't agree more, thanks

Missed this before! Wonderful, Ruth and probably quite true for many unfortuante people.
