If only…….. I payed attention to my pain?
Instead I pushed on, numb and cold, carrying my smoldering hate.
If only….. I payed attention, to what I would say?
Instead I lit fires and left others in my wake.
If only….. I would listen, but instead pushed you away?
To trust was to much, instead I chose my fears and hide away.
If only…. I stopped, and chose to be still?
Life may have been different, less lemons. More sweet.
If only I reached out and allowed someone in?
Who knows the difference, the right decision, initiates change.
If only….if only…regrets are the worst thing.
