I wish I had that second back a minute ago.
I wish I had that minute back when we laughed
over a comic strip that reminded us of ourselves.
I wish I had a basket full of minutes I could give away
to everyone that wanted a piece of yesterday or tomorrow,
or would I be selfish and keep them all to myself?
If I had five minutes, would I use them all at once
or would I save one or two for some other time;
like a stack of unread letters, would I open the best first
or save those for last, to ponder in a quiet place
or would I share them with ... let me think about that
for a minute or two...
