Sometimes we feel lost as we get older and we look back at the actions we took when we were younger. More often than not we will have regrets on those people in our lives, we should have been paying more attention to. We spend time running through our minds on those people we have lost either through time or distance; not because it was their fault. In our youth we think we have unlimited time and in some ways we are everlasting. That mindset, that thought process as we get older is when we realize how truly flawed it is. If only we could invent a time travel machine and use it to move back to that moment in time that we lost that person that you now know was perfect for you. This human condition we call life is downright full of regrets and lost.
I know that I am not alone knowing full well that if I could have just done it a little different, then it would all be different. In the distance, and down through the years I feel in my heart that you think of me as much as I think of you.
Lost, the feeling of comfort I had with you,
Quality of life I have only known with – a few.
Lost, knowing your thoughts and mind,
Our dreams walked hand in hand two of a kind.
Lost, are the ways you would look at me,
Knowing each other so well was the key.
Lost, on how our hearts would simply agree,
Of charmed times and what could be.
Lost, the tender moments of just you and me,
Gone forever, like at the time we couldn’t see.
Lost, the future that we should have been dealt,
All of these passionate emotions I feel and – have felt.
