Is the past a place?

Is the past a place?

Can you retrace your steps?

To help find a way,

To what is lost,

The chance to right a wrong,

To reduce what your mistakes cost,

 

Or is too late?

Is the road too long?

The way too fraught,

The risks too high,

 

Some things we bury,

Too deep inside,

Some chances are forever lost,

Caught and tangled,

High and beyond reach,

The lesson’s life teaches,

Sometimes have a cost,

But hope and memory, endure,
