Frightened we fell and started fights
Yarned to escape the city lights
Lived with one desire to hide
But our dreams couldn’t catch a ride
We rode onwards, just pretending
That this life was never-ending
It’s no surprise but caught in shock
The moments lived cannot be given back
One chance awaits just to be taken
Another moment lost; mistaken
It’s gone, can’t touch it anymore
Yet we curse courage for walking out the door
We mourn and listen; broken smiles
As courage stands behind the isles.
But if that chance maybe regained
We promise not to cause the pain
We never let it be forgotten
Take it next time before it’s rotten.
But what if this is the only time?
Too late to speak another line,
To touch a heart with the words we never said
And tomorrow may not come,
like the chance that never did.

Half smiling look and hazy eyes
Unsure of what to do
Afraid to say goodbye.
Last glance into a mothers face
A hand still held
Small heart is beating out of place.
Destination made has come to stay
A chance has passed
Too late to walk away.
Can’t fly back, so hold your tears
Forget what’s been
Time strikes for brighter years.
Some said You’ll be well better of
Some said You should have stayed
Some said, now kid it’s up to You
But once it’s done, decision’s made.
She could’t bear to look and wave
Into the lonely stares
As moments passed a tear had rolled
But nobody was there.
And I spent my whole life waiting
Waiting, waiting, contemplating
Whether you were the one worth waiting
November 7, 2013
I thought I’ve seen you here before
but never got the chance to say goodbye
as you walked out of that door
with out saying why.
Things disappear so many times
and we don’t even realize,
how much time in our lives
is wasted right before our eyes.
So love the one you want to love,
don’t let your chance fly by
because you may never know,
when it’s time to say goodbye
