Might Have Been

Friends, laughter, fun

Lazy summer days by the river

Cool breeze off water

Pines and mountains in the distance

All my childhood could have been

All the friends I never knew

All these years lost

Never to be recovered

For the good years are gone

Never to return

Never to be found

There is a regret so deep

Cannot be said

Not for the things I have done

But for all I have never known

Missed opportunities

Lost friendships

Love evading me at every turn

Now what?

Carry on with pain?

Or let go and find peace?

How much more can I take?

Close to the end

Ready to slip under the waves

And feel no more
