Rating: 3.1

'I wonder... what might have been had I put a stamp on my Valentine and dropped it in the box.' So many love stories never begin just because we do not take that one step.. Tender regrets remain only at the end of it.. A beautiful poem that many, many of us will relate to.. Thank you for sharing.
