Sometimes we look back and feel the pain of things done wrong that we wish we could change.

If I could, Lord knows I would
Change many things that are past
Make them right, at last

But how on earth can you go back
Retrace your steps and retract
All the heart wrenching mistakes
Like a movie doing retakes?

For life moves on, circumstances change
Things of the past are far out of range
People, places, incidents and meanings
Fade from view leaving few gleanings
That could reconstruct the original setting
Which brought about the remorse for which I am fretting

Yes, through the years I've learned quite a lot
Many understandings that prevent me from not
Doing the things of then in the light of the now
But if I could just change the past, my heart cries how?

I said the wrong things at the right time
And said the right things at the wrong time
In the midst of many a plight, I just didn't get it right
I hurt some whose hearts were tender
It still makes me wince when I remember

Why did I do that without really thinking
Foolish errors without even blinking
Eventhough God has long ago forgiven
Some may find it hard, whose emotions have been riven

But Oh how my heart cries out for the good
And to make undone certain things if I could
Lord knows that I would

A FINE WORK...ONE THAT EVERY PERSON ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH CAN RELATE TO BECAUSE WE 'ALL'...HAVE INSTANCES IN OUR LIVES THAT WE WISH WE COULD FIX...IF...WE COULD. THIS IS A KEEPER, THURMAN AND THANKS SO MUCH FOR SHARING. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...

oh, you expressed my own thoughts so well, Thurman! Remorse and regret plague me as well..it is a part of aging...realizations - come late - kick in a conscience that haunts us..my wise nephew told me, "Youth is for making mistakes'...that must be it.

Most
Americans will tell you not to beat yourself up and to move on...I can not understand that..it's an attitude thing.

Bless you and Merry Christmas!

You have opened a Pandora's box here, Thurman, as memories rush in. Some things, we can try to make amends for; others, we have to take to the cross and leave them there with Jesus. He alone can give us the peace we need--peace with God and peace with our memories.

God bless,
Connie

"If I could" I would! Surely, it's difficult to undo what has already been done, but to trust in God for forgiveness that's quite possible.

Oh, Thurman. You have spelled out so beautifully how I am feeling
right now. Not that it's a new experience, but when life is throwing
lemons at you, you tend to recall the lemons you threw, right? Not the only time mistakes flash back, just that they fly in in bunches.

Be easy on yourself, my friend. You are obviously a very fine person.

Think it's called being human.

Always, and Then,

Truly heartfelt and honest; I cannot understand how anyone could not relate to what you have expressed via your verses here, Thurman. Thank you. Love, peace, and blessings to you,
