Everyday I think of you

Everyday I think of you.
Everyday I wonder what could have been.
If only it didn't happen then!
I was scared. Unprepared.
Didn't realize what I had until it was gone.
I guess it's true what they say.
I stay up at night trying to figure out if I could have lived any other way.
Could I have tried? Could I have saved myself from all the tears i've cried?
Your daddy wasn't around, he left the both of us. He didn't understand what loving you was.
But I did! Yet I still let you go.
I've got my reasons, but whenever someone asks me all I can say is "I don't know."
Sometimes I wish I could turn back time, and hold you in my arms and tell the world you were all mine.
I wish I could have thought of another way.
I'm living in this pain but somehow I know, that we will meet again someday.
