Despite all these years and all this time,
I can still see that moment,
When I failed you. When I wasn’t there.
I still see my shoes because I’m still staring at my feet.
I see your frantic pace across the floor.
I hear the inner scream in my being
Telling me to say something, anything
As I watched muted because I didn’t know how–
How to be the friend you needed,
How to take us back to what we were:
Just two kids not ready to grow up, but still we were.
And no matter how many years pass,
How much good I do throughout my days,
I will always regret
How I just turned and walked away.
