Eric Hanson's Poetry

  • Looking Back

    If I had another chance I’d tell you

    that the things we had were right and

    I threw it all away.

     

    Time cannot erase the love and memories we

    shared, but it gives me time to reflect and

    realize just how much you loved me.

     

    Now that it’s over and your gone for good

    I’m really not the same anymore. 

    I guess I only have myself to blame.

     

    Time cannot erase the things we said, but

    It gives me time to reflect and realize just

    how much I loved you.

     

    The love we had and shared just can’t be found.

     

    Now that I’m without you and all alone,

    it gives me time to think about the years that

    I was truly happy and you were mine.

     

    I know I should have told you to stay

    and fought for “us”.

     

    I didn’t want to be the person who held

    you back from your dreams.  What if we

    didn’t work out?  How could I live with myself?

     

    Even though I know in my heart you’re the

    one I should have held onto and never let go of.

     

    I’m reminded all the time that time cannot

    erase the memories a joy of the true love we

    once shared, but it gives me time to reflect

    and realize what I lost and threw away.
