Turn Back Time
I wish I could turn back time
To go back to when we were friends.
To a time when your face would light up when you saw me,
When you still laughed at my jokes.
Before the heartache,
Before the hurt and anger,
Before the hate.
I grasp those precious moments in my fist
Reluctant to let them go,
Because despite where we are now
Those memories were my happiest,
And as they began to seep through my fingers, I cry
Knowing that, if given the chance,
I would do it all over again
Regardless of the outcome
Just to feel that happiness again.
