The One That Got Away…

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY…

I think of you often,

wonder what might have been.

~

If I’d done things differently,

been braver with my heart.

~

Time has only heightened,

a sense of deep regret.

A love that could have lasted,

cast adrift too soon.

~

You left to find someone new,

to fix your pain inside.

I let you go without a fight,

made you think I didn’t care.

~

The choices we make,

that change our whole lives.

It sometimes takes time,

to know what we’ve done.

~

But now I can so clearly see,

that you for me will always be.

~

The one that got away.
