I wish I knew this earlier

that time was indeed in our favor,

I wouldn’t have rushed this,

I would’ve let love take its course as it pleased,

the hurry,

the pain,

the unspoken feelings of shame,

all the ego I carried,

don’t make sense now as I reflect,


I cannot go back in time,

I can only regret and feel lonely at times,

I can only wish you back,

hoping that we make our future brighter on the foundation of time lost and our past,

and tomorrow,

a promising start will indeed suffice,

for love always resurrects when there is a death of pride.
