Daylight Savings Time

Of a different sort

Wouldn't it be nice if each year
get back an hour from another time
use that one hour so judiciously
to explore, revisit, repine!

An event that I would look forward to
If only it is for an hour
be privy to lost moments again
and those emotions rediscover

Could I tell that woman "I love her"
Instead of breaking her heart
Could I for once right those wrongs?
before that hour departs?

Alas time isn't that malleable
so with fake hour one must contend
for now we just lay back in bed
close our eyes and pretend

The End
