For the one I let get away. I wish we could turn back the hands of time. Replay life and fix our mistakes. This is to remind everyone that when the right one comes along do not hesitate. Make your decision and stand by it. No regrets.

All My Fault

© Jason Follbaum

Let me speak of a simple thing.
Yet more important then a rose ring.
I speak of a promise from your lips to my ears,
that took away all my fears.

To wait until our time had come,
and let me do what need be done.

Time has passed, the promise a lie.
Now I Just want to lay down and die.
I finally did what I needed to do,
All you could say it that we are through.

I just wish you had told me from the start,
You could not wait it would tear you apart.
To force me to make a decision back then,
Now we will never know what might have been.

Don't take this the wrong way, there is no reason to.
Feel no regret, I'm not blaming you.
I took my time like I always do
I know in my heart, It's my fault we're through.
