Regret


You always wanted to
But you never took the leap
The leap of faith
That bold step forward

Regret kills you now
Memories haunt you
If I had done that
Wouldn’t life be worth living

And maybe, something precious
Something you treasured
Has been lost, has gone forever
And only ashes remain

Now, you wait for days to end
For someone to come back
You stand at the door
Gaze out of the window

That some day, some time
They might return
And you might rejoice again
Jump again, laugh again

Hope keeps you alive
But regret
Pinches you, like that painful soar
And reminds you to never
Never ever, make that mistake again
