Rendezvous with Regret


November's PAD Challenge Day 3.For today’s prompt, write a “the last time I was here” poem.

I do not come here often
For I cannot bear
Its mantle of memory
Its grief and despair
But life hands us lessons
We cannot forget
Yet, I cannot tarry
Too long
In regret

The last time I was here
I vowed, not again
Regret is a futile
And profitless pain
After forgiveness
Though I may not forget
I must not return
To wallow
In regret


"If we spend our time with regrets over yesterday, and worries over what might happen tomorrow, we have no today in which to live."
