Love could have been mine

A Poem By Bridget // 1/29/2010

I never let love touch my heart
I’ve never wished upon a star
Because I found when all was done
That disappointment was too hard.

I’ve never danced in quiet rain
What would result was all too plain
I had found, when all was done
Other’s scorn held too much pain.

I never dared opinion assert
Always my mind was on alert
Because I knew when all was done
I would not end up unhurt.

I never took chances
I sat out all the dances
And all that entrances
Left me behind.

I missed opportunities
And stuck to necessities
And now I wish all these
Were things I could find.

If I had my chance again
I would try to make friends
And not stay at the back end
Of every line.

I’d fight every fight
And dance every night
And live life with delight
And love would be mine.

Love could have been mine.

I have to give credit to Keri T; something she wrote on the message board inspired me to write this.  It's not the way she felt, probably, but it gave me the idea.
