Rewind

If I could hold you, confess

If I had more than black-and-white

If I could see your hazel eyes

I would not wish the clock rewind

 

If I have a chance to say sorry

For the things I’ve never said

The apologies

The confessions

The heartfelt truth tumbling from my lips

 

If I could only erase your memory

About the things I’ve never done

The caress

The warm kiss

The steady shoulder for you to lean on

 

If I could forget my mistakes

If I could avoid reality

If I could tell you those three words

If I could only be at peace

 

Someday soon I’ll find the courage

Someday soon I’ll face the truth

Someday soon I will not wish

For the sprinting clock to rewind

The End
