Maybe....

Maybe if we met again
We could have fulfilled
Our love better
Maybe if we were given
A chance to start all over again
We wouldn't have allowed our love
To be reduced to a heart full of memories
Maybe just maybe we would
Have given our love more respect
And not sacrificed it
At the altar of meaningless ego
Maybe just maybe
I wouldn't have waited for you
To say you are sorry
And you won't have waited for me
To take the first little step
And say it doesn't matter
Maybe if we met again
In the quest of salving our pride
We wouldn't have lost sight of
The real thing that mattered...
And still does
Maybe we wouldn't have let
time spin this intangible, insurmountable
barrier between us
Each waiting for the other
Yet not willing to break free.
Hiding their love
Behind an ice cold barrier of ego
and bruised pride
Maybe if we met again
we wouldn't have let this
masked monster residing within
each of us get the better of us
Maybe if we met again
We would have each other
Rather than a heart full of
Nostalgic memories and regret
