Poem: Thirty Years

The words scream regret
But I can never forget
What I did
Your face does remain
But I can never regain
What I did
Heart races as I write
I can’t put up any fight
What I did
You were not to blame
My life buried in shame
What I did
A heart aches for peace
Still trying to release
What I did
I turn to you now
Upon my gospel plow
What I did
Can I make amends?
Can we again be friends?
What I did
We look at our daughter
She is our future
What I did
