Should a Would a Could a

Myself with my mother in law Claire
The following poem is something I wrote for one of my dearest friends who just happens to be my Mother In Law. 
We have had a really good relationship since we first met back in 1986, and have been great friends ever since.
Claire is notorious for saying I should have done this or I could have done that. This is what inspired me to write this poem for her.
Should a Would a Could a
Should a Would a Could a is not the place for you.
Think about tomorrow and the things you want to do.
Leave the Should a Would a Could a’s where
They belong and think about the things to come,
Not where you've gone wrong.
Think about the dreams, the things you want to see.
Think about the fun that you shall have with me.
You cannot change the past, just Live for Today.
Yesterday is gone; leave it there, where it belongs.
Think about tomorrow and the things you want to do,
The Should a Would a Could a’s of the past are gone.
