3 way switch circuit

Hi,

Is there a way to make the bottom lights work with a 3-way circuit with a switch in each of the two boxes without pulling more wires? I wired the top lights normally but forgot about the bottom ones at the time. Is there a way to make this work that's not occurring to me?

Grounds not shown. Wire colors are just illustrative to make discussion easier.

Thanks

Are all 5 lights supposed to come on together or the group of 3 and group of 2 switched separately?

No. You will need to pull more wire or cable. Easiest way might be to get a cable from one of the 3 lights to one of the two lights.
