"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. "
