If Only

Written by: Leanne Perks

If only things were different, if only I had thought, 
lessons I could learn if I had been taught.
If only I had been in another place, I may never
have seen your face.
If only I knew what life would be with you, I wonder if I
would have gone through with it, if only I knew
the real you.

How Stupid I feel with Sad regrets that I try so hard
to hide and conceal but the lasting effects are painfully
real but as time has passed I've learnt to deal the emotional
strains and I have found that the hurt and the pain do not 
last or remain forever.
