Options

I stood by you and let you ruin the one chance you had of happiness.

I stood back and let you ruin your life.

I felt I had let you down

Then you turned to me for help

How could I help you after what I let you do?

A part of me screamed stop her, another said its none of our business

I was at a crossroad, which part of me should I listen to.

Should I turn away and pretend that it wasn't happening.

Or should I stop you.

I guess I chose the easy option.

Pretending was easier than stopping you

I realised I couldn't make up for that mistake

But I could help you now

I realised that I should never have taken the easy way out.

Choosing the hard way may be painful but it is the right thing to do in the end.

Now I hope you can forgive me.
