And I only have 2.
And one is not really a regret but my "What If".
I've paid my dues
- Time after time
- I've done my sentence
- But committed no crime
- And bad mistakes, I've made a few
-I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
- But I've come through
to borrow a few lines from Queen
WE all have mistakes.
My one and only regret is moving to the country and this house. I took my daughters from their family, friends, and the school that they loved to here.
We would not have had the bad years if I hadn't did it.
It's all mine.
Roy wanted to make me happy and bought me a house in the country.
It seems so simple to see it now.
And the other....well....it not really something I sit around dwellin' on.
But recently, outta the blue...call it hormones.....or too much time in the pool on my floatie....I told Roy if we had a baby together we would have had one child that would have liked us both.
He just smiled.
And our lives would have been so much different.
If we had had a baby together, EudoraMae never would have left.
Roy would still be workin' for the state.
And I would have never worked at the Clinic all those years...I'd be a stay at home mom. I worked becuz EarlLee was a lazy Bastard and Roy shouldn't have to pay for someone else's kids, so I worked.
EdithAnne...well I'm not sure...I think she would have left no matter what....she really loved that school. It was almost an obsession with her.....That Huge What If for her.
I don't think she would have left the way she did though...she's a good kid. Just confused and a bit selfish.
It would have been a totally different path....But I'm not gonna dwell on it.
Becuz Roy and I have had a good life together...despite the bad years.
And little JustinCase Hightower would have been 10.
You have to be happy....we aren't gettin' outta this alive so live it to the fullest.
