There is one thing

I absolutely hate, when
things occur to me too late,
and I am always wooing -
what I could have should have -
and never doing. Just before
the taxi started, I could have,
just before the headlight darted,
I should have, just before you
turned, and the pavement
burned with your little steps,
I could have, should have run -
if only you could have been mine,
love, what would I not have done.
