He thought about his life.
A different life, brighter life, a life filled with fun and laughter; a better life.
He might have spoken differently, loved easily and cared for and cherished the simple times that just flew away.
If he knew that his reserved nature, his rude behavior and stilted conversations would make him regret his past he would have lived differently.
He wished he knew then what he knew now; that love makes the world go round, love makes life worthwhile, makes our friends and family support us and love us.
If he knew it is just love.
