About the Poem

I grew up with a certain gorgeous young lady. I first met her when I was twelve. I walked into our Sunday school classroom and there she was. It was love at first sight. I tell you I fell in love with her immediately. I knew I wanted to marry her then and there.

As we grew up together she was very cruel to me, hateful. We went out once or twice but just as friends. I am so very close to her mother and always spent time at their home. So we were always around one another. I was so afraid to tell her of my true feelings towards her because I thought I would push her away. Then I got to the point where she humiliated me in front of my friends and such that I was angry with her and just tried to stop loving her. It didn't work. She tried reaching out to me the night before I left for boot camp but I cut her down and tore her heart to pieces by choosing another girl. What a mistake. Well yesterday, April 10, 1999 she got married. I will always wonder "what if".

My Regret

Word said, hearts bled
All I am left with is my regret
I loved and Lost
And it is all my fault
She loves him now,
They took their vows
Because of my cowardice
She now is his
In anger and in fear
I held her not near
So she ran to him
He took her in
And now I am left with my regret
Because hearts bled by what was not said.
