I couldn’t say goodbye,

Didn’t want to let go

Pieces of you I held dearly

Slipping away.


I didn’t watch you leave

I couldn’t at all

But I felt the gaping hole

Where you were missing


I tried to move on

But difficult it proved

Every little thing

Reminding me of you


Years gone by

Still thinking of you

Of what we could have been

Of where we didn’t go


Do I regret it?

I can’t be sure

I still love your smile

But hate that it wasn’t for me.
