Room for regret

The truth is, I knew I could have lost you
but was sure of it the moment I saw your hand
slip into another's-

unexpected, that I cry again
for a love that was buried ten years ago
under the roses bushes, behind the swing

exact locations of these memories
where we kissed last,
before we knew how to open our mouths

where we whispered
a secret long know to the adults before us
a universal truth

the truth is, I know I have lost you
by way of never once having you
why then, is there more room for regret now?
