late at night i close my eyes and imagine our life all over

to start i'd erase all the times i made you cry

and then all the things i said to hurt you

i'd take back the pain and the emptiness

that i left you all alone with

for sure i'd rewind the lies and betrayel

fast forwarding through all the abuse

i'd replace the items and money i stole from you

even buy you new shoes

i'd turn your frown upside down and leave you with a permanant smile

take you out on the lake and keep you laughing

until we both fell asleep 

i'd grant your wishes to all come true despite how outregeous

and place a dollar under your pillow every time you were extra good

i'd pay attention to all your worries never saying that your stupid

i'd hold your hand and kiss your cheek and always make you feel safe

when the storm comes into town and the thunder begins to roll

i'll hide you under the covers and help you count to ten

we'd watch fireworks and hunt for easter baskets 

bake cookies for santa claus

all this and more i'd do for you if i'd had one more chance

pretend will become real and the past will never haunt us

life will leave us with inner peace

not regrets or bitterness

(if my mother was alive i know this is what she would be wishing for her and me)

    There are so many times we say, "What If?" Too bad we can't go back in time so it wouldn't be necessary to feel this way. Guess all we can do is remember how badly we feel and treat those we love better in the future. Very nice heartfelt write, Brandy! Love, Carolyn

    Hi Brandy... its a sad thing to reflect upon missed chances and opportunities and to know another reality was always possible.... some times I think the choices we make are not choices at all, but merely impulsed reactions to situations we have no true grasp of.... the out come always unsure. Aways best then to impulse with love... great work Brandy
