Make It Right

You gave away

Your one last shot at peace

Next step is the last one at least

Till you regret

All the things you should have said

Will wind up dead so deep inside your soul

I tried to say

What you wanted to hear

All that came out was just ringing in your ear

I let got of a small tear

Like the one in your eyes

Such a worthless surprise

I gave you everything I have

Take it or leave it or give it back

It's all your choice

Make it right

Make it last

Stand up to the fight

Don't prove me right

With all that is said

Such a beautiful night

Now the light has gone dead

Don't make the mistake

Author's Notes/Comments: 

There are some things that you wish you could change, but know you can't- no matter how hard you try.  You just have to hope for the best choice and try to make it the right one...this poem is about just that.
