A Chance

He sees her in the halls
He sees her in the cafeteria
She's beautiful
She's popular
Always surrounded by friends
Always surrounded by boys
'She's too pretty for you'
His friends say
'She's way out of your league'
His friends say
And he believes them
So he never tries to flirt with her
Never tries to talk to her
Never tries to catch her eye
And smile
He loves her
But can't have her

She sees him in the halls
She sees him in the cafeteria
He's gorgeous
He's popular
Always surrounded by friends
Always surrounded by girls
'He's got no time for you'
Her friends say
'He's not interested in anyone'
Her friends say
And she believes them
So she never tries to flirt with him
Never tries to talk with him
Never tries to catch his eye
And smile
She loves him
But can't have him

Fast forward ten years
She's been divorced three times
He can't hold down a steady girlfriend
Both want a soul mate
But don't realize they passed on one
If only they had given each other
A chance

If they had gotten together
Bought their love past crush level
They would have dated for senior year
They would have dated during college
They would have been engaged
They would have been married
For sixty-five years
They would have had three children
And ten grandchildren
They would have been happy
If they only had given each other
A chance

I love this poem. It's so true. People don't understand what they have until they lose it. Then again, you have to have it first. I would forever regret not doing something about that. Always asking: "What if?"
