Last Time I Saw You Alive...

We exchanged harsh words...
I let you walk out that door
without a goodbye

    there are many intense emotions there in moments such as these.and seconds later regret comes in.but there is always that question, who will go after the other... great write, Tim. I hope all goes well. ~Always&Forever Lynette

    Dear Tim, I know your heart aches when you think of this. You had no way of knowing this would be the last time you would see him. I think Paula will be very moved by this true story. There is nothing that can compensate for such a loss. Love, Carolyn

    It is a mistake we have all made at one time our another....painful lesson indeed. This is exactly what Paula's contest is needing....the honest double errors in judgement we all make. Well done. Carrie

    Unforunately, this happens far to often--then one lives with the regrets. Good luck in the contest. Have a wonderful weekend. Karen
