If Only I Could

April 26, 2016

PROMPT: Time Traveler

If I could turn back time
I'd know exactly when to stop the clock
Right before the hour hand reaches nine
Before the ships were tied up at the docks

I would stop at where you stood in front of me
Where your eyes were willing me to understand
Where my hands were clenched into fists beside me
When I suddenly found it hard to stand

I would rewind to that very moment
Just before I ran away
Because I admit, I was scared
Scared your mind would change in the day

And right there, I would know
All the things you wanted to say
I would feel what you felt
Along with everything you couldn't convey

So if I could turn back time
And I know it's kind of late
But if I could, I would stand there and smile
And ask, "What were you going to say?"
