Recessional
Copyright George Papavgeris, November 2002
I believe that despite our imperfections, much can be forgiven, as long as we have the capacity to love. Yes, I know that the road to hell is paved by good intentions; but I love the damned as well, not just the angels.

Before I say goodbye I take a look behind me
To see what mark a simple life has made.
Recall the happy times and keep them deep inside me
Before my memory of this world will fade.
They say that every life behind it leaves a ripple
But I did nothing grand and earned no fame.
Yet one thing I did right, important, yet so simple:
I had the sense to love you when you came.

Too late to have regrets, too late to learn the lesson
Too late now to put right what I did wrong.
I know I can't go back, the pain I caused to lessen
It's hard to make amends with just one song.
When weighed against the deeds whose memory still shames me
The little good I did now seems so tame.
So when I reach the Gate, only one thing will save me
I had the sense to love you when you came.
