The One that Could Have Been

You’re leaving and
I’m left wondering
what could have been.
As you walk away
the tears run down my face
and all I want to do is
ask you to stay.
But we both have
dreams to pursue.
Why do they have to be in
different countries? Why did I meet
such an amazing guy
just to be torn apart?
I wished for you, and
now I found you.
If only for a
brief moment. You’re the
one I’ll tell
stories about. The one that
could have been.
