Advice to Avoid Regret

Too often we neglect our parents’ advice

What we make until our step lapsing 

Too often we are not care

What we do until it is away

 Too often we don’t realize

What we have until it is gone

Too often we wait too late to say

“I’m sorry – I was wrong.”

Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones

We hold dearest to our hearts

Without using our thinking

And we allow foolish things

To tear our lives apart.

To break our heart

Far too many times we let

Unimportant things into our minds

And then it’s usually too late

To see what made us blind.

So be sure that you let people know

How much they mean to you

Take that time to say the words

Before your time is through.
