I Should Have Treated You Better


I know I did not treat you well
And from a distance of years
I now have the time to dwell
On it and I blink back my tears

I was a young immature lad
I was carefree and thoughtless
I didn’t want to be bad
I didn't mean to be heartless

I should have valued what I had
You deserved better than me
It now makes me very sad
That we were never meant to be

But it is easy to blame fate
I have to look within me
And myself alone berate
For the fault was mine, I do see

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
