Lifes Journey

She's haunted by the what ifs,
The why's and what could have been,
She's haunted by mistakes she's made,
That shattered all her dreams.

If only she could reverse time 
And go a different way,
Maybe things would be different 
Sitting here today.

She knows her worries are futile,
We each have to follow Gods plan,
Lessons had to be learnt,
She had to play her hand.

She tries to live in the here and now,
Forgetting the pain and sorrow,
Enjoy each day as it is given 
And live with hope for tomorrow.

Wonderful Elizabeth. a 7+ Sometimes its hard not to regret mistakes of the past though, bringing forth the question 'What If'?

I'm sure we all have regrets that we wish we had handled differently. Lessons we all learn.
