If Only

If only I had my chance again I would have;

Kissed you for that moment longer at the alter

Held you closer in times that mattered

Said that I loved you louder than ever before

Forgotten the things that didn’t really matter

Been more proud of who you are and what you meant to me

Been thankful for all the good you brought into my life

Said sorry when I really meant it

Listened more and defended less

Laughed more

Cried more in your arms

Been stronger and braver

Learnt to enjoy the moment and acknowledge our special times together

Been less cynical and critical

Been more understanding and accepting

But most of all

If I had my chance again I would never have walked out of your life; our life

It was such a cowardly thing to do.
