Gary the Poet's Pen
An End to What Could Have Been
This song always gets to me and I sometimes have to cry
When I think of the seasons and the crazy reasons why,
The lyrics from this song drove me into a depressed zone
I never found peace of mind or a lasting love in my home.
What could have been had become my favorite thing to say
It gave me a badge of honor and the courage to forever stay,
After decades of building empty castles and drifting in the air
I decided that could have been was no longer for me to share.
There is much more to this life than just the desire of a lover
I had so much life left to live and by the grace of God discover,
If you are held hostage by the sad words what could have been
Make a decision right now to make a clean break and an end.
I still have never held what could have been and I never will
I am now holding tight to a true love that will be mine until,
Unrequited and totally undecided are not qualities to seek
Moving on and making a new life are wise words to speak.
If it was not beautiful and you are finding yourself all alone
Act upon the advice I have given you in this pensive poem,
Never settle for what could have been, but seek the Light
And a true love can be forever yours every day and night!
