Your heart breaks into million pieces, you regret at ever chance you had to make things right, ever night you lay motionlessly staring at the top of your celling wall thinking why didn’t I do something before tonight? Then you wake up the next morning with a brand new chance to do it again, take it and tell them how you feel before its too late, like it was for me!
