Years fly

Years pass, like wind through hair
I watch with sorrow
For the things I didn't do
And people I miss
But I loved
And I loved you
I burned all my tomorrows
For a chance for today
To be
Yours for a day
And I don't regret my act
I had to take a chance
If I didn't
I'd be here
Saying I wish I did
It is the coward's way
And so now Older by far
Death is near
And without shame
I know what I want
Upon my final breath
I want to say I love you
Missing you will haunt me
For the rest of my days
But at least
I got to lay in the sun
And return your gaze
For a little while
While you called my name
