Regret

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.
