I had made different choices in life;
and followed other paths,
would my journey been better?
Would there be less pain and sorrow,
oh, I often wonder about if only;
I had done this or that- said something,
or not said something, would it matter ?
I would not have married so young;
not have had a dead baby,
why did I not see that my dad was sick.
I could of stopped working to care for my mom.
not be the one to turn off her live support;
someone else could have,
why was I the only one with courage?
I wonder why people turn away from me;
to break my heart,
what was my flaw, what did I do?
I have come to the conclusion,
that sometimes people come to teach us;
they were never meant to stay,
yet, the lesson is often hard to understand.
