About the Poem

If you know what it's like to try and find the words deep inside, and tell someone that means the world to you how you feel, then you know what this poem is all about. If you know what its like to regret every day of your life about how you did not ever tell this person to their face how you feel towards them then this poem is all you need.

When you know what it's like so many months after not saying a word to who you've written a precious poem to, and having every feeling for them just as it was so many months before, then you know me.

This poem I've written for a guy that touched me in a way you or him would never understand, but because I kept my vows, and didn't leak a single word how I felt towards him I now am swamped in regrets of what I had, what I've lost, and how I would give anything to make everything right between us today.

Lately I've been thinkin', dreaming, and breathing the memories of my baby's father and this poem really hit home because I wish I could have that SECOND CHANCE! I ruined our relationship and it's been 2 years but i feel the same way the poem explains EVERY day. I'm Sorry :(

My Second Chance

Long Ago
I knew you,
And every memory I shared with you

And how painful sometimes it is to remember
Every Word
Every Day
Every Time
I was with you

And how close I felt to something special
Something deep inside
You were a part of me
You had a part of
My Soul
My Heart
My Mind

And how every day I got up 'cause of you
And everyday I couldn't wait to see you

And how I regret those days I kept my silence
And how I wish I would have said something
said anything, to make you understand

And then we left
We stopped talking
It was my fault. It was.

And how I wish I could change that.

And how sometimes late at night, I can't fall asleep
cause I wish you were here
And how I wrap myself so closely with that blanket you used

Just to remember
Just to feel something
to feel a part of you

And how sometimes I lay lavishing myself in tears
Waiting, Longing, Yearning
to feel your touch

Just to be with you
Just to hold you
Just to kiss you.....once

And how some mornings I wake up reaching out for you
but you're not there
And sometimes I imagine that you care
And how once in a while I fantasize we'll talk
once again

And how I wish I could take my second chance
to be near you.

I wish for a second chance, but all I have is this I wear to remind me that it your fault and it was'nt his, it too late!
jana
I can't really explain what I felt,when I just read your poem !I went through the same almost 15(!) years ago. Since then there is not one month gone by,where I didn't regret,that I didn't tell the man I loved my true feelings. So take your chance while it's there-YOU DON'T ALWAYS GET A SECOND ONE !
Christine
This poem tuched my heart. Me and my x-boyfriend broke up about 2 months ago and even though I have done some crazy things sence then all I want know is to get him back. This poem says it all ~Christine~

tanya
hey i like your poem verry much. i'm a 13 year old who fell in love with this one kid i met on the school bus. he was verry cool, but then this yurr he hasn't really talked to me,and i just wish i could tell him i love him, but i was afraid that he would not like me back, and never ever talk to me again. so know i have to suffer just seeing him from affar and hope for the best.
Emily
Almost the same thing happened to me, I had liked this guy for almost the whole year, and kept every word of my feelings to myself, when the last day of school came, I had a million chances to tell him how I felt but instead I chose to once again, keep them to myself Now it is summer and i'm hoping against hope that when we go back to school, he'll still have feelings for me, because I know I will still have feelings for him. I only regret not telling him everything I felt for him. Great poem, It realy said absolutely everything I feel.
Elizabeth
I've just written a very similar poem, expressing the same emotions and yearnings. My poem is good -- this one is much better. I cried when I read it. 'Nuff said.
