Regret of Inaction

Regret of Inaction 

For all the marks 
In the book of my life
I have few regrets
Few mistakes that I would erase
To do over again
But your name carries two
One solely for me 
And the other for you

I regret 
That I went against my true nature
And stayed myself 
From the action I most desired

And I regret
That you were not brave
Who, after you asked me to stay,
Did not take the chance to move

And perhaps it is that
The regret of inaction
That I am most sorrowful for

That I stayed
And you did not move
