I miss 
the friends I never made,
the smiles I never showed, 
the secrets I never whispered, 
the laughs I never shared.
I miss 
the places I never went, 
the thoughts I never had, 
the songs I never sang, 
the books I never read.
I miss 
the love I never gave, 
the hearts I never broke, 
the tears I never shed, 
the words I never spoke.
I miss 
the things I never did, 
the chances I never took, 
the wishes I never wished, 
the endings I never had.
as I stand here so alone 
thinking back on the days long gone 
wistful of 
the person I never was.
