To Look Backwards

Too many years have I spent looking back,

Thinking about the choices I would make,

Just so that I could find you in the past,

And obliterate our future mistakes.

But for all the time I’ve spent longing,

Of a past-future that we could not take,

I glance forward to see if you look back,

And wonder if you regret this past, too.

    1. I was thinking about such things just as I woke up this morning. Perhaps I had a dream of holding someone’s hand, or lingered on the lost details of a smile. Whatever the case, you’re welcome. I’m delighted to entertain.
