Words I have spoken

It's so hard to move forward
Holding onto what is gone
I fail to see the sun rise 
When I'm thinking of the dawn

There are words that I have spoken
That I wish could be reversed
Within the halls of memories
I choose to live among the cursed

Apologies not accepted
I mourn the friendships I have lost
The more that I commiserate 
My soul is forced to pay the cost

So instead I'll choose forgiveness
I was never meant for this place
As I look towards my Savior
He removes all sadness every trace

    Richard as much as I try, my comments can not come close to expressing the talent you have. You are a great writer! Cheers

    Think before you speak, words can not be unspoken....the ones who understand forgive rash words spoken in the heat of the moment. Excellent write and advice. Hugs

    I was not trying to put question marks at the end, my new tablet has emoticoms and it was supposed to be a happy face.

    Thanks, from a human perspective it can be impossible. However with Jesus all things are possible.??

    I condone the message here. Our light within our tunnel...its up to us in how we define it. How those around us affect our smiles. "Every trace"...

    It's a gloomy day until the ending, when the light of the world comes in. I like that. Powerful message too.

    That is the truth that many have yet to come to understand. The truth that surpasses all understanding.

    He places our sin as far as the East is from the west. We have much to be thankful for.

    Lovely, Richard....I have just put my whole leg into my mouth and have asked for forgiveness. It is nice when it is extended graciously! I loved this piece.

    I too have had my moments but for the most part tend to think before I speak. Still there are times that what I say is misunderstood.

    Wise words. Words must never be uttered in haste...or in the heat of the moment. Those who forgive shall be forgiven...// paul

    Unfortunately the tongue is one of the most difficult muscles to control. That's why few have been able to fully tame it.

    Oh Richard what a superb write. This reminds me of something an old lady I used to look after would say to me..... 'three things never come back, the spoken word, the sped arrow, and the neglected opportunity' Jan xx
