What Could've Been

I'm haunted by what could have been
What could've been mine
Could've been ours
Love that might have lasted forever
I'm tortured by the words "What if?"
They're scorched onto my brain
Always second guessing, always regretting
What if I did this instead?
How different would our lives be?
What if I wasn't shy back then?
What if I kissed you?
Instead of letting my fear control me
Would we still be together now?
Would we be happy?
I never knew why you did what you did
And it kills me not knowing what I could've done
To save us from the pain
I can't help to blame myself
Even today, guilt shadows over me
I've moved on
But I will forever wonder about
What could've been
You and me
