"I gazed upon all the Edens that have fallen in me, I saw Edens
that I had held in my hands but let go, I saw promises I did not keep,
pains I did not throw, wounds I did not heal, tears I did not share. I saw deaths I did not mourn, prayers I did not answer, doors I did
not open, doors I did not close, lovers I left behind, and dreams I
did not live.
I saw all that was offered to me that I could not accept. I saw the letters I wished for but never received. I saw all that could have been but never will be. "
