The Long Goodbye ; brent heighton Pictures, Images and Photos

What do you do
when you miss out
on a could have been?

He let you go
even though he said
you could have been perfect.

How do you know
if you have done the
right thing in saying goodbye?

You said things
you shouldn't have and
now there's no turning back.

When does the doubt
subside and release you
from this feeling of regret?

You might have been
the love that each of you
waited to find for so long.

Who ever knows why
things happen as they do
or where you can put the hurt?

But somehow you
just move on with
your life again...

Never forgetting
as the cost of regret.
