knowing

you never knew - did you?
how much i loved you.
looking back, now i see
what i should have done.

instead of always being there
ever ready for you to lean on.
listening to your tales of woe and
giving you my best advice.

i should have been listening -
listening to my own advice.
if only i hadn't been so blind
i would have realized that .....

you and i were not that much different
in fact, we were very much alike.
you loved her - i loved you
and somehow we missed one another.

if only i had told you -
told you how much i loved you.
would it have been enough to
have saved you, and brought you to me?

this is something i'll never know,
for now it is too late.
i was silent for too long, and
now you and i can never love .....

one another. it would have been
wonderful - you were always
good to me, and you loved me in your
own way, but i didn't realize it.

if we could try again, would you?
this time i would tell you
how much i love you, and .....
this time you would know.

unspoken words
lasting regrets
*sigh*

i never call a poem "nice" or such,
for that would not be saying much
