poem

Don’t Regret

don’t regret

that you didn’t say the words

your heart held onto..

stuffed in your inner being

fearful of what might take place

if the truth was spoken..

don’t regret that you didn’t try

to make that call or send that note

that would have put your heart at ease

and free you, like a bird in flight..

don’t regret that you didn’t try to make amends

because pride stood in the way

or you were afraid of what you might say..

don’t regret that you didn’t say thank you

and yes, I love you.. too

don’t regret that you didn’t try

to reach out and now

you wonder why…
