My Only Regret
6 June, 2000
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


The only regret is the lack of time I spent with you
Just us...our time
Away from the hustle and bustle of reality
The magic moments that were ours

To believe together in something
More powerful then life
Where if we closed our eyes
We could have been anywhere

Our time to be the dreamers
Escaping to our fantasies
Where for a while the whole world disappears
And nothing matters but the moment

That is what was missing
The main ingredient of us
There seemed a wall around our world
Too solid to penetrate

So my regret, is in the neediness
Of the missing element
Allowing me to be so clouded
And absorbed in its lack

I missed the joy of what should have really been
As I stood with you at the wall so long
Looking at it in disbelief...
I should have been looking at you

------- Author's Notes -------

Sometimes we are so caught up in the way life seems to be treating us We forget to be thankful for the wonderful things we already have. When we finally take notice can be to late

Sooooo True

Hey Becky

Truly amazing, how true that we forget we are surrounded by beauty in everything and everyone. Always let those close to you know they are special to you. GREAT POEM Becky.
