How to come to terms with
events bygone?
How to come to terms with
things left undone?

How can I cope with
all those regrets?
All those unfinished tasks,
all those words left unsaid!

All those dreams,
abandoned midway.
When life just happened
and I had no say.

I feel such longing for
all the songs I didn’t sing,
the trails I didn’t take,
the art I didn’t make,
the poems I didn’t write,
the mountains I couldn’t climb,
the bridges left uncrossed,
the friends, who could have been,
the cities I didn’t explore…….
Oh! I want so much more….
