A Lapse in Time by J.B. Stone

How we clasped or our days of youth
Like a locket of our regrets
Stuck in the “what could’ve been” time in our lives

How we still gasp at our own crossroads
Trying to be shocked when we know we shouldn’t
Because failure is always the toughest pill to swallow

How time can lapse as we start to forget certain moments
Once held dearest to our minds and hearts
Now fading recollections
