If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.
- Native American proverb

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas

What is past is past -- it is the present and the future that concern us.
- Hiawatha, founder of the Iroquois Confederacy


I used to hope and pray for you;

But wishes don't always come true;

I was all alone;

And then it all changed when I met you.

 

I know the cure to heal my heart;

But it's not here with you;

I am running back;

To the girl I used to be.

 

I am going back;

To the boy who never chased me;

Now he wants me by his side;

The way it always should have been.

 

We are together once again;

Still young enough;

To remember how we felt;

Without our other half.

 

I am alone no longer;

Oh, how good it feels;

When you put your arm around me;

And your lips meet mine.

@Yoda-Parker Thank you, Chlos Pin! I know, I may have made it a bit too sad, but I wanted to say what I meant.
