For Our Love...A Requiem

It was a collage of  
Could haves  
Should haves  
Would haves....  
That just racked my brain  
The pain of leaving you  
Left a stain  
Beneath my chest  
This second guess  
Is weighing me down with  
Too much regret...  
For not accepting your offering of a crown  
I should have bought you that wedding gown  
We could have easily escaped out of town  
To seek our justice of the peace  
Just us  
You and I  
With a new lease on life  
Husband and wife  
Running away like boy and girl  
Taking spontaneous cruises  
Around the world  
Toasting and coasting  
Between a sky deep with indigo blues  
And a shimmering ocean hiding  
The secret of pearls  
Where we exchange vows again  
In the night time  
The right time  
With the constellations shining  
As your bridesmaids  
And the moon would give you away to me  
I would take you by the hand  
And alone we would dance  
To the soft music of midnight waters  
I would twirl you  
Dip you  
Grip you back into my arms  
Slip you a kiss  
So nice...  
So warm....  
The kiss of a lifetime....  
That never came to be  
My name I never gave to thee  
Children that we'd never get to see  
The pain just remained    
Too deep  
Our dreams never reaped  
Passion never sowed  
Because I owed it to my family  
So I pretend to live happily  
Stuck between the  
Realms of memories  
And make believe  
Lamenting on  
All the days  
I ...  
Could have...  
Should have...  
Would have.....  
Came back to you...  
But didn't.
