I’ve already got a list of regrets – The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd
Now I regret ever thinking such a thing. The truth is Prudence gave me the best of Ruth. She gave me back the happy life-loving woman I married, and I owe her for that. If it wasn’t for her, Ruth might never have made it through those last few months of carrying Joy.
I should have told Prudence these things when I had a chance. Now it’s too late. She’s gone, and all I can do is regret that I didn’t tell her.
I’ve already got a list of regrets as long as my arm. I regret I didn’t let Virgil Jackson take that damn pig, I regret putting poor Ruth through those years of misery and I sure as hell regret having to bury two of our babies. The thing about regrets is that no matter how many you’ve got, you just keep adding more. You might think that once a person understands the heartache a regret brings they’d be careful about adding more of them, but that’s not possible.
The problem is you never know exactly what it is you’re going to regret until it’s too late to change what you’ve already done.
