You knew this would come but you’ve always been young.
The glass slipped onto the tile, that’s when you felt it first for a while.
To take care of yourself, being pampered never helped.
I’ve never been sure on my own, I’ve never gotten past a drone.
So come back and count to ten, don’t make a sound.
In times past you were unable, yet, you found to be stable.
So look towards the light when you’ve run out of sight.
Dark fog will swamp your vision, light’s warmth helps decisions.
You’ll wake up with a glare. You’ll Stroll down from the stairs
To where your cave is flooded, from what you call stuff gathered through years.
You’ll whip out a black bag. Start to feel the drag
Of albums, books, and costumes; an old photo of you with a shag.
You get serious, searching through this mess
You start to quiver from lost memories of timid times of regret.
And you’ll know. And you’ll say…
I’ve been missing you a long time.
Stop hindering your goals. Quit burying past holes.
You never wanted to be alone. You never wanted to be alone.
You won’t know if you don’t try. Only faith can get you by.
You never wanted to have regrets. You never wanted to have regrets.
