Looking Back

Music plays softly within my head
Whispering the words I wish I said
To those in my life long since gone
Passing through quickly like the dawn
Had I asked them to stay just a bit longer
Would it have made our bond just a bit stronger
Could they have found something to make them stay
If I did not always hold them at bay

To allow others to share from my cup
But maybe I didn’t try hard enough
Those times I tried to seem a bit too tough
Always said I could do it on my own
If only back then I had truly known
