I Wish You Could Have Known

So in this Poem there's 3 people involved. His Side, Her Side and the Narrator. :) 

I hugged her,
and didn't want to let her go
I miss her so much
Yet I couldn't let her know.

I was not hers
and she was not mine.
But once upon a time,
our lives were intertwined.

He makes her happy,
I could tell by her smile.
But she was the one
who made my life worthwhile.

It’s been 2 years,
Since we’ve been apart.
But our memories somehow remain
Indelibly engraved in my heart.

What went wrong? We both wondered,
As we gazed in each others eyes
Searching for some answers
Before saying our last goodbyes.

I hugged him
and didn't want him to let me go.
I still love him
And wish I could let him know.

But he’s with her now,
To start his life anew
They will soon be wed
secretly I wished, this I could undo.

He kissed her on her forehead
And left her with the words “take Care.”
Cold shivers ran down her spine,
As she tried to hide her despair.

He turned and walked away
as she quietly whispered “please don't go."
but he walked on with tears in his eyes,
Whispering along, “I wish you could have known.”
