Shadows of Guilt (2009-06-25)
I say I have no regrets.
A one way ticket, life lived as it should.
So; why in the quiet does my mind harbour guilt
lurking in the shadows, a monster in the wood.
It’s been a lifetime of acquaintances.
Was I only a passing shadow in their time?
Love was devoured and friendships built.
Wasn’t it all fun, songs, laughter and wine?
Still the memories remain strong.
I wonder though, with the wisdom of age
whether life lived as we did, to the hilt,
leaves shadows scarred from past loves’ rage.
I have no regret;
Only shadows of guilt.
