Missed Moments

The one that got away

is it the same sentiment when you stood back

watched yourself walk away, watched her keep moving forward

happy and blessed

while you were in pain and stressed

all because you did not want to repeat a previous disaster

steal the joy of another and make it your own

despite knowing how great your life could have been

despite feeling all the support and love she could give

despite it all, you had to keep your distance

so that you dare not hurt her

hoping that maybe one day

her path to you would turn
