In my alone time,
These thoughts I gather,
About the ‘should haves’ and the ‘could haves’
But instead I said all goodbyes,
And didn’t realize it, until it was late,
Was it just me, or was it fate?
“Say it, Say it”,
My conscience screamed.
Couldn’t gather courage, I wasn’t brave,
Their departure crushed me like a wave.
“Next time, I’ll tell them”, I tell myself.
These are the lies upon which I dwell.
