Fixing Regrets

Days are flying by so fast
But there is something in my past
Regretting I will never know
How our love was meant to grow
Blooming into something great
I kick myself--- It's much too late
To repair the brokenness 
From the lack of openness
That was supplied on the way
Of turning my back everyday
On problems you tried to repair
But I did not want to hear
Compromise with good solutions
Leaving you with bad contusions
Of my selfishness and greed
I left in your hour of need
Calling my name--- begging me
To step back and really see
There is something here worth saving
But my soul was only craving
A world of freedom far from here
Just leaving you standing there
With a sad and painful look
Now I wish that I could book
A time machine and travel back
To a place and time to smack
Some sense in my foolish head
So I don't live with this dread
Taking you inside my arms
Fixing the things I did wrong

    This immediately made me think of Cher's "If I Could Turn Back Time". This is something to which we can all relate. I adore how you convey universal feelings and sentiments. Grrrrreat piece! <3

    Robin, I felt like I was flipping through photographs and letters of they who once were part of my life and thinking of what could and what could not have been.

    Nice introspection of one's self, Robin
