My Regrets

My description of a woman in travail over her decision to leave her family. We are sometimes left in the choices we make – good and bad!


I reach out to my children, alone,

I chose a man who’s not my own,

I left them long, long ago,

It did not hurt for me to go,

But over years that have gone by,

I start to see more tears and cry,

My thoughts turn back and what I see,

Is a life of selfishness and dark seed,

I chose the path, it was my choice,

To be set free, and then rejoice,

But that joy was soon tempered down,

When I realized my smile did frown,

I was miserable and stuck in my deed,

I missed my family, my very seed,

My contact with my children does lack,

They don’t seen to call me back,

They hold a grudge against me this day,

And I guess it shall always stay this way,

Oh, to have that choice again!

I would stay with my family, friend!
