I Wish I Had Told You

I Wish I Had Told You short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

The bygone time is a handwritten book
Every step left behind has its story
Sorry there’s no time for us to read in detail
for we need to continue the journey in a hurry

Sorrow often overwhelms me when nights fall
These feelings are so intense that I can’t sleep
How eager am I to get myself understood
but so inept I am to express my inner thoughts

We spend so much time to get money and fame
that we ignore the sincere care from our beloved ones
But we finally find money and fame don’t matter
when they are put in comparison with love

When I look backwards many years later
the ones I missed and the happiness I finally reap
they are forever in my heart
I wish I’d told you I cared about you
I wish I’d told you I was so much into you
