2016 Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 3 – ‘If I’d Only Been Bolder’

empty-room

Yesterday’s prompt: take the phrase “If I’d Only (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then write the poem.

If I’d Only Been Bolder

Would I have less reason to regret
As time turns me slowly older?
Wasted chances I’d like to forget
Leave me feeling ever colder
As I long for that warmth I once knew
When leaning upon a lost love’s shoulder.
But now in these bitter days of blue
I ask this empty room, if I’d only been bolder,
Could I have shared the years with you?
