Have you ever wished that you had done something and then regretted it because you didn't? That's how I feel about a special lady and friend who has been part of my life since secondary school. I had the opportunity to be with this beautiful girl and yet I feel a fool for turning her down because I wanted to focus on my schoolwork. Now thinking about it, I can't seem to get this everlasting regret out of my head... I constantly wonder what life would have been like if I had of said yes instead of no. She never escapes my mind, she is always there and it upsets me that I missed out on what could have been something truly beautiful. Sometimes, it really eats away at me and my heart just feels low and deflated. It might sound really silly to a lot of people, but this girl is someone truly special and I feel like I failed. I try to let go and just let things be, but it's just so hard. I'm so grateful for the fact that she is part of my world, but sometimes I wish I had the courage back then to take our friendship further. But now, I am stuck with this everlasting regret.

When I arise each and every day,

I think my darling of this everlasting regret,

The pain that I do feel in my heart,

'Tis something I can never forget.

 

In my mind I always wonder,

What life would have been like if I'd have stuck with it,

If we had been together from the very start,

I was a fool I admit.

 

I try my sweetheart to stay sane,

I try so hard to just let things be,

But it seems I have become my own prisoner,

Who will never be set free.

 

You are the one who makes me smile,

My beautiful who makes me whole,

The one who showed me true love,

The one who makes pure my soul.

 

I wish I could say how I really feel,

How it kills me inside,

To know that I missed my chance,

I just wish that I had tried.

 

Now you have found someone else,

To be by your side,

My heart cries each night,

Knowing that I lost the girl who makes me feel so alive

 

I just wish things were different,

That I had the courage back then,

Because the only girl I seem to think about,

Is you over and over again.

 

I think of your beautiful smile,

And it makes me so happy,

But then I think of how things are now,

And my heart grieves oh so sadly.

 

I cannot be selfish for it would be wrong,

To want you to be with me,

For you have your own life,

And so like a caged bird, I want to set you free.

 

I will always love you,

With all of my beating heart,

I will never forget what we've been through,

Whatever life may throw at us, I never want us to grow apart.

 

You're such a special person to me my sweetheart,

Someone who I never want to lose,

Because to lose someone as special as you,

Would give me nothing but the blues.

 

To know a human being as beautiful as you,

Is a true blessing indeed,

I'm so happy that you are part of my world,

For when I am down, you are my relief.

 

So long as you are happy my sweetheart,

That is all that matters to me,

Enjoy life and do the things that you want to do,

Whatever will be will be.

 

Well my darling sweetheart,

This is my poem to you that I have set,

The one which I will never forget,

The one that will forever be my everlasting regret... I love you my darling.
