Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

I should have learned

I should have learned


I should have learned to type while I could see

and many other things obviously,

but no one prepares for something like this

you don’t practice what you don’t know you’ll miss.

So many opportunities I spurned,

I should have learned.


We take so much for granted in our lives

simple gratitude, so unrecognized

It often takes a tragedy to see

how blind we were to possibilities.

It’s not too late for you, my bridges burned,

I should have learned.
