YOU (are my what-ifs and could-have-been)

You
Who made me look beyond what I see
Who made me appreciate those that I don’t
Who made me feel that the world was different

You
Made me bend some of my rules
Before I should have, I already trusted you
Before you even knocked, I already gave you the key

I wish I could tell you how I feel
That my heart is longing for you each day
I wish you had even just a single idea
That all I wanted was for you to stay.

You
Gave me a touch of fairy tale
And brought me to the magical world
What if you were a prince?
I could have been your princess.
What if you chose the wrong option?
I could have been the one you needed.

But, I guess, I just have to settle with what was left
Rather than wallow in tears and in sadness
I have more questions than answers
But I will let them go even when they remain unanswered

And that’s just how it’s probably going to end
That you will always be
My what-ifs and could-have-been.
