If Only

If Only

Time passes so fast
It leads us to an unknown future
While the past is lost in a flash
There is no chance to fix mistakes
Say the words that should have been said
Retrieve a love that was lost
Memories fade to dust
New ones take their place
Why can't we go back even for an hour?
Why can't we know then what we know now?
We suffer with choices that shouldn't have been made
Just one moment could change your life
One word said in the spur of the moment
One kiss that should have been shared
One love that would have lasted forever
If you could go back would you make the changes
Would you let the past stay the same?
If only time was like crossing the street
What a difference a second could be
If only...

    Unfortunately Rob the present also seems to be going in a flash, and no doubt the past with regrets or not helps us reflect on life and in doing so possibly helps us grasp a happier today and tomorrow!
