Twittering Tales — Regrets

73C1AA66-DF05-46B7-A6FA-CF53020FD8D7I’ve lived a long life, a good life, a happy life, and as I look back on the life I lived, I have few regrets.

No regrets about the deeds that I’ve done or the things that I’ve said.

But I do have regrets about the things I never got around to saying to you.

And now it’s too late.

    I made regrets the subject of my share my world post this week.
    Is regrets somebody’s prompt as well?

      Ha. I don’t think so. Just a happy coincidence, if you believe in such things.

    And we will never know. Well written, especially the words you didn’t write. 😉

      With a 280 character limit, there were a lot of words I didn’t write.

      So you’re saying it’s never too late? Maybe the person he was referring to was dead. In which case, it would, indeed, be too late.

    Maybe we could all have books like this; they could be titled “things I want you to remember whether I ever said them before or not” (or, depending upon your perspective, the title in the picture is fine). My dad wrote me a multi-page poem, years ago. I had him take it to his house when I was in the process of a move. I hope it’s still in that house, even though he’s gone.
