It Could Have Been

An afterthought occurs only when
something else could have been.

It doesn’t matter if yours or mine
as each shall follow us through time

Would you lament of something you did?
Or of something you didn’t do?
In any event the moment’s spent
and judgement lays upon you.

As the clock ticks round and round –
and earth opens her shameful ground
for our bodies to lay ’til judgement day –
and afterthoughts shower us – as rain in May
to leave us there – within lonely despair
to wonder of things that could have been.
