Regret

Off the cuff… and from the heart.


I’d love to have the love we had when we first met.
but mistakes have been made
things have been said
and somethings are hard to forget
and forgiveness
although not impossible
is hard for you
to give

Does this mean the mistakes made by you are too hard to forgive, and those by her are not? Intriguing, would like to know more. Sue.

Hi Richard,
A small gem, in my humble opinion. Says such a lot with a great deal of economy; clever, too…
Cheers,
Jim

Ah yes! The first flush of love can so easily become tainted with resentment. A minefield for the unwary. Great poem, well done on the nib an’ all.

Thanks for the kind comments. This isn’t really a poem… it’s just words that came to me and I quickly jotted them down. Just words and ‘out-loud’ thoughts! Thanks all 🙂
