He Wished He Knew!


copyright: erin leary
Standing in what was once their favorite spot of park brought back memories of the past.

He had avoided coming here all these years. He had tried pushing all the memories to the back of his mind but seeing her smiling face today had been too much.

He knew it was his mistake; he had never understood her love and had always taken her for granted.

He wished he knew then what he knew now. Then he wouldn't have had to see his love smiling jovially in the arms of someone else; a smile that should have been for him!

Until the next post,
Keep Smiling :)

Love,
Swathi :)

  14. Dear Swathi,

    Ah that hindsight. As Joni Mitchell sang, "Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got til it's gone."

    Nice one.

    Shalom,
