This came so strong, had to write it down ...
"... Would I give them for a better life, riches and gold? ...."
Forty eight: a splendor of years,
a splendor of years! Worth the tears
I've cried. Would I give them for a
better life, riches and gold? Nay,
although the journey has been hard,
(heart broken in a thousand shards
of misery), I would not trade
the path taken, the mistakes made,
and learned from. Would I change them? Of
course. But would I then have known ... love?
(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (11/16)

Taken me this long to learn not to take peeps at face value, and the few real friends, treasure them....

|I shudder at the thought of reliving my life. I've escaped so many tragedies by the skin of my teeth. I always think (as you do) that I would have missed out on a whole lot of beauty, and inevitably done a worse job of living. Nice thoughts. I'm glad you wrote them down. Writing sort of solidifies thoughts somehow, doesn't it? --Charlie|

|Maturity and intelligence make this piece of poetry a reflection to share.
And I would add: "Would you have known... life?"

|Beautiful deep write Karla
Let what's in the past
Stay in the past, that's where it belongs
Don't look for no tomorrows
T'aint none so just live the rest of today
for when the sunrises, it will be another Today
Love & Peace

|A soul-searching poem with a satisfying answer. We all would likely change--or want to change--some things, but most we'd keep the same.|
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|What a romantic and nostalgic look at love and the feelings that linger as loving memories forever..no matter what heartache occurs.
