In retrospect

I spent the day in retrospect

thinking on things I’d done

and on things for which i regret

there are times in my life I’d thought were

so bad

but looking back now

I’ve been blessed to have had

the chance to experience the pains and regrets.

for in the pain and regrets

I’ve met beautiful people; seen beautiful things

the chance to dance that dance

and to live my dreams

I’ve grown

I have loved and I’ve lost

I have loved and I’ve lost

now I love again

But this love is different……

it’s because of the past…

because of the pain…..

I made a promise to God things would not be the same

I love this man with all my heart….

he helps me live my dreams

His bright brown eyes

his quiet stance

in retrospect……..

This is the dance.
