This is an honest piece of contemplation. I am sure we all go through the stage of 'what if I had....'. However, the success of those fine young adults is reward enough for the path taken.

Your poem made me sad and happy at the same time. Happy that you gave all to your family and are blessed in return, sad if you don't just get on a plane and start painting Paris. Well, it doesn't have to be that extreme. Explore some of those dreams as much as you are capable.

Nicely penned, Loanna. I've always wondered . . . if you knew back then what you know now, choices would be vastly different. Caution often holds us back from grabbing the gusto. So glad you have a wonderful life now. It's not too late to go to Paris, you know! :D

Oh Loanna this is just beautiful, I wish I could give six for it. You have a great talent. I enjoyed the poem immensely.

Our children have grown to be fine young adults.
I've grandchildren lighting my days.
and for every old dream I gave up on-
I've a dream that will bless me always.

Well done
Mary

Oh the mind numbing, heart rending, time wasting emotion of regret! It haunts and stalks the corridors of our past, teasing and tempting us to sorrow. It is a healthy thing to reflect on those choices that we DID make and to know with certainty that if was the right thing for us. Very well done.

Till the last amen

Yes, I understand that what we wish for will at times not be given to us, therefore, we wish we had been different before all of this took place. But we dealt with our life the best that we could. And even though we were let down, we still managed it okay because of having our wonderful children and grandchildren, we are fulfilled. And beyond that, there's more good waiting for us! This I will always believe. I really enjoyed your read, and so glad you posted this. . .Sharon
