Poetry – What if…

What if I had said I loved you?
What if I had said I cared?
Would the past have stayed untainted?
I have wondered all these years.

What if I had gone the distance?
Would I have remained in your heart?
Or was I just a convenience
to keep your mind off something else?

What if I had met you
that day in the park?
Could we have even endured our time apart?

What if I had hugged you,
that night while we were drunk?
Would you be here with me now,
Would my heart still be tearing apart?
