The One That Got Away

They're all
The ones that got away
No matter how I feel
This day
That day
They're all the girl
Who got away

All my memories
My uncertainties
Turn to regret
I can't forget them

They're all
'The one that got away'
Despite the fact
I left them there
I let them go
They're all the girl
Who got away

Today, it's Vicky
Yesterday, it was Emma
Tomorrow, it's Clare
And then maybe Jessica
My regrets
I can't forget
The one that got away
They are all
The one who got away

But would you look
At what I managed
To hold onto
You're the one
That I still love today
You're the one
That answers everything

    You've constructed this poem well, leading through the whimsical fields of flower gazing & memories of 'ones that got away' to the one you hold here and now. Yet there is an undertone of regret methinks; I'm sure you posit it to underpin the melancholy of time wasted until finding the bloom of a lifetime... Rgds, Ivan
