I have often said about life, it's not always about what we've done...but what we have failed to do. The regrets over things we should have done, but didn't.

Sure, we all have done things, actions or words, that we wish we could take back. In this writing though I am talking about the things I wish I HAD done. Like say goodbye to an old friend that I knew wouldn't be around much longer. I had plenty of chances...and I also had plenty of excuses. "Well perhaps he's not up to seeing anyone today" and the list goes on. "I'll get there someday".

This also happened to me many years ago. I knew I had to go see someone I needed to ask for forgiveness. I put it off, made plenty of excuses..."yeah, I'll do it someday". Then I got the news he had been killed in a horrific accident. I recalled then the words of the famous CCR song, "Someday Never Comes", and I remembered those words again the other day when I got the sad news of my friends passing. So today, I share with you  those words of that John Fogerty composition. Perhaps it may keep someone from having the regrets I am struggling with. So a little advice? Don't put it off. Make that visit, dial that number, send that email. Not "SOMEDAY", but now! I promise, you won't regret it.

                                                     Someday Never Comes

                                   First thing I remember was askin' papa, "Why?",
                                        For there were many things I didn't know.
                                And Daddy always smiled; took me by the hand,
                                        Sayin', "Someday you'll understand."

                             Well, I'm here to tell you now each and ev'ry mother's son
                                      You better learn it fast; you better learn it young,
                                              'Cause, "Someday" Never Comes."

                                    Well, time and tears went by and I collected dust,
                                       For there were many things I didn't know.
                                     When Daddy went away, he said, "Try to be a man,
                                                 And, Someday you'll understand."


                                  And then, one day in April, I wasn't even there,
                                      For there were many things I didn't know.
                                   A son was born to me; Mama held his hand,
                                       Sayin' "Someday you'll understand."


                                    Think it was September, the year I went away,
                                         For there were many things I didn't know.
                                    And I still see him standing, try'n' to be a man;
                                              I said, "Someday you'll understand."
