A Bittersweet Love

A Bittersweet Love

A Poem by Margarette

“Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets.”



I hope we can turn back time

And redo all the decisions we've made

Erase every mistake we've done

And lay down with one another still


Until that time when we are all ready

To accept what lies ahead of us

Please, make those precious moments last forever

Don't let it go to waste


I should have held your hand

You should have reached out to me

We should know each other's feelings

We should have never said goodbye


Time has passed since then

We have not seen each other so well

Just a glimpse would have been okay

But the thought of greeting you seems so far away


Winter's fast approaching

Would this end up a sad ending?

Cold and alone here we are

Sitting by the fireplace knowing we're not fine


I should have called you

You should have soothe my fears

We should have made it until the end

We should have never said goodbye


This mess we've both made

Tragic and unexpected it is

Both dying from agony and suffering

Which could never had happened


if we should have just said “I love you”

A very good poem. I like the journey you took the reader in the poem. Easy to hold regret and wished we used kinder words and held on tighter. I could feel the desire to take back regret ans start fresh. A strong ending to a excellent poem.
