Always in Spring
jostled from wintry sleep
the time of renewal
I awaken to dreams of you
though you do not exist
real enough in my mind
my heart
with me you stay
more than a memory
I travel the road not taken
I could not do right by you
know I did right by you then
not just by me
my mistake, my folly
and so much more
I've learned
and felt
more than I thought capable
a pain that lingers, the dull throb
taps on my mind, a healthy reminder
I tried my best
chose accordingly
paid the price
more hefty than I could have known
consequences accepted with little option
but not so severe as what could have been, those you might face alone
and I don't know what will be
so you are not
