Maybe we were meant to be,
but not to be each other’s companion.
Maybe we took the wrong turn
and did not realise it sooner.
We are never the same
but perfect together.
We both fired shots
but we were already down bleeding.
If sorry was a person,
none of us could have been it.
If apologies were water,
none of us would have been alive.
Sorry, not sorry, for having broken you.
Sorry, not sorry, I loved you against all odds.
Sorry, not sorry, we had to part.
You were not the only one in the line,
but your lane was much brighter than theirs.
If sorry was a gift, then I could have been
your Santa, before you moved on.
If sorry was to stop time, I could have requested
eternity for us to live again.
