    Very nice poem Dagmar. If only we could go back but we cant..too bad life does not have a backspace button..I wish I wish I wish!
    Your poem took me down so many old roads of my life and made me so sad to be reminded of some things said and left unsaid, because all we end up with is a big fat pile of regrets to live with.

    Very well done from me :)

    This is so heart touching, life is a roller coaster. We need to experience some heart torments and regrets to appreciate the happy moments. Very educative, i admire the simplicity of your words but gives very strong impact to the sense. Excellent!

    This is very well-written. Everyone and anyone can definitely relate to this..

    'So many times
    i have wondered
    how life would be
    if only i could go back in time
    turning back the clock
    knowing what i know now'
    I've wondered about this many times before as well. When I read these lines, I felt I was saying it! Proves this is indeed a powerful start.

    'unfortunately, it's not possible'
    well, after the previous lines, you just kinda smacked the reader right in the face. It is impossible. And time machines only exist in movies..

    'hurtful words were spoken
    fighting pain with pain'
    I love this part..pain with pain.. nice

    'allowing anger and bitterness
    get in the way'
    add 'to' between bitterness and get, it'll help with the flow..

    'i am only human
    far from being perfect'
    I like this part. Another smack in the face. Humans try their hardest to strive to be perfect. But we're far from that.. light years away..

    'if only i took the time and listen'
    I think you should change and to 'to'
    and i think it will be better if you interchanged only and i.. just a suggestion though..

    'there was no going back
    it was too late
    if only i could go back in time
    so many cries and tears
    could have been prevented'
    Another reality check, and you ended the piece elegantly. Great read 5/5 Keep writing :)

    We do dumb things when emotions and pride get involved.
    That is why regret always comes too late.

    How true. The older we get the more wise we become. I think we all have regrets that cannot be put right. Peace of the Heart is acceptance of what cannot be undone and it's not easily achieved xx

    We all wish we could...but you know through all that
    pain and hurt there are valuable lessons we have learnt which
    makes us understand life and go ahead forward been a bit more
    wiser...take care
