I apologise it's taken me so long to write
but with shaking hands
tightened throat
i find myself composing
to you

why keep invading my happiest thoughts
when i'm busy trying not to think of you
thick hot feelings in my chest don't want to remember
as you have so easily forgotten me
at the click of a button
the flick of a switch


my dearest
deepest regrets
why appear when i'm about to succeed
i am born to live
not relive these choices
i regret
my darling

but you are still my dearest
darkest regrets
laughing with me in a victory dance
i wish we hadn't died so young
beautiful bright blue
skies make me smile
especially when it rains and
i still
sing off key to stupid love songs you wrote
stained cigarette smoke
is engraved in my car
and the banjo will always beat guitar


do you remember the sea winds
blowing whispered names
and memories that were just our imagination
messages in the bottle
i know i have
stopped
treading water and remembered
how much i love to swim

strangers and friends ask about you darling
deepest things that my voice can't say
too scared
to rub salt into the wound
that's
just a scar now
yet things i know im missing
sting
still my favourite
mark


oh regrets dearest
i love far too much
i do
ghosts in the graveyard calling
out my name
they tell me to bend
i refuse to break

look how far i've come
with so much further to go
i wish we could
talk more but you never had time
for me
darling don't say
you did



perhaps i'll write another time
but till then
all my love
my deepest darling
regrets
Write a letter to your regrets.....

Don't we all have regrets? We just have to learn how to live with them.

Exactly.
If everyone put their regrets in a bowl- you'd still pick yours.

I agree. Our own experiences make us who we are.

:) exactly
I like to think this seems a sort of acceptance/understanding of regrets

Makes sense. That's the way to move on with life.
