Variables of regret

There are things, over which we have no control over
The mistakes, the mishaps,
The memories of them.
Also there are things you have no idea about
Like the happiness waiting at the next bend,
The little things we have in life which we usually take for granted,
Almost everything that we overlook.

The good things fade easily
A smile, a laugh, however heartfelt, never remains long in our memory
While a drop of tear, a hurtful word stays behind longer than it should
Over time, forgiving gets easier and forgetting harder.
It’s almost impossible to believe now
Yet everything comes to fade away with enough time
A lot slower than happiness, though.
Melancholy, ironically, has a hold firmer than joy, on our heart.

    Sad, yes in a way. Also maybe a bit accepting of things when they don’t go our way.
    And Thank you 😊❤️
