What Could Have Been
There he lays on his bed with only empty memories,
And fading dreams to live inside his mind.
While life lasted, everything was in the future.
He had plenty of time to make it all come true.
Every moment he thought about working on his plans
He said, “I have the rest of my life to do.”
Where there’s a will there’s a way.
With neither now his troubles lay
Right there with him in this lonely place.
As he leaves one life and enters another,
He leaves behind no marks on the lives of others.
He leaves no changes, no Memories to enjoy from past the skies.
If only we could see like the man that saw it all.
If only we would be willing to find the things that matter in the end.
But sadly, we can never know, until it is too late, what could have been.
