Almost

‘Almost’, 
Is the saddest word in the world,
Aside from ‘He almost died,’
It’s blackened and shrivelled and curled, 
It's chances never taken, 
Opportunities that we miss, 
Dreams that somehow got squandered, 
Breath that could have turned to a kiss, 
But I am one of the loved ones, 
I believe that I’m good for you, 
Because we could almost make it,
We could almost see it through,
These imperatives you use,
Could all be turned so morose,
"She did it, she said it, she was it”,
If they only incorporate almost,
See I could be smart, I could be pretty,
But I’ll try not to boast,
I promise everything’s great,
Everything’s fine,
I’m happy,
So happy,
Almost.
