I Forgot To

I Forgot To

A Poem by Janice

I Forgot To


Today I lie in silence

for she has turned and walked away

for good this time, I'm certain of it

I wanted to stop her, tell her I love her, tell her not to

tell her that it's she who has stole my heart

But I forgot to...


I forgot because for a moment in time

my heart had stopped suddenly

my voice as silent as a dreary darkened night

my breath no longer could be taken

my whole world now shattered, torn and shaken

But I forgot to...


I forgot because I realized that I had to let her go

although I so badly needed her and I still loved her

but it was time that I put my own needs above her

how I have now paid the ultimate of costs

But I forgot to... and my conscience told me not to

For tomorrow I shall remember

all in her that I have lost.

Those moments when we know what is best for the other person but it still tears our heart apart.

We regret the things we don't do not the ones we do... life is full of choices and being human we won't get them right every time.
