If I Could Turn Back Time: A Poem

If I could turn back time, three years I'll go,

To end this state now before fate was set,

Change my mind, undo what I now regret.

All the poor choices that I didn't know…


Till it was too late. Or… more than a few:

Before I was burnt out and lost my fire,

To the first time when help for me was dire,

To when I was blacked out… and then came you.


But just as I found you, away you went,

When I reached for you as you had reached me,

And gave me light, but now I stopped reaching,

Though someday soon, you'll know my true extent.


Realized my dreams, asked for help, made you mine,

Or made you see… if I could turn back time.
