Desideratum

by Cadence Beret


I sometimes find myself wishing
You would’ve been the one

There were so many things about you
I could’ve loved

There were so many thoughts you shared
I should’ve asked about

Our dreams could have come true
I wish you would’ve been the one

But now you are long gone
I wish you could’ve been the one

I sometimes find myself thinking
You should’ve been the one

. . woulda
. . . coulda
. . . . shoulda
. . . . . desiderata
