Right Where I Belong
You said you'd like to relive your childhood;
To somehow take a trip back in time;
To mitigate some wrongs that were done you;
Avoid the ones that did you a crime.
There's doors you think you'd now leave unopened;
Pathways once ignored that you'd take.
You'd like the chance to change your direction;
A chance to rectify a mistake.
But hindsight and regret are your devils;
They tempt us all to languish and pine,
They steal you from right here in the present;
Your hopes and dreams move backward in time.
It's time to forget,
But don't ever regret
Whatever you think has gone wrong.
Don't ever forget,
And never regret
That right here is where you belong.
See, hopes and goals are meant for the future,
They have no power stuck in the past.
Live your life by changing tomorrow;
Each dawning sunrise may be your last.
No accidents, no recriminations,
It's all just as it is: meant to be,
And all will meet their true destinations.
Look forward and I'm sure you will see.
I stand behind my every decision,
Still proud of everything that I am;
The past, with all its miscues and baffles,
Has brought me to this place where I stand.
I do not forget,
But I do not regret
Whatever in life has gone wrong.
I will not forget,
And will not regret
That right here is where I belong.
