Looking back across the years
At good and bad, of happiness and tears
That moment when you should have said
But bit your tongue, and stayed silent instead
The decisive moment when you shirked away
Comes time and again, like an old replay
And then the time you blurted out your feeling
Then bowed your head, for what you’re revealing
Remember the opportunity that passed your way
You just stayed silent, when all you had to do was say
Life is full of mistakes and wrong turns to atone
It’s also pondering what may have been, the unknown.
Do you regret your actions that cannot be undone?
Or regret more the things, which you could have done?
