Broken-Heart Reminiscence (2011) - Poem by Stephanie Hazle

If I could go back

I'd hold his hand, fingers entwined

I'd snuggle much closer in his embrace

Tip on my toes to kiss his face

I'd use my forehead to touch his

And just gaze.

I'd listen intently amidst the silence

And not be deafened by it.

I'd lay beside him to hear his heartbeat

And feel when his breathing changed.

I'd have paid more attention to how he called my name

When he said I love you, I'd have felt every word

and shown in million more ways that I loved him too

I'd have danced with him and closed my eyes

Be lead by my heart, not my mind

Allow him to catch me should I fall

Then shower him with praises in abundance.

I'd have enjoyed hearing his voice on the phone

I'd have even appreciated his whining tone

I would have relished when he said

'I miss you'

Then let him know how much I missed him too

I'd have blushed when he said I was pretty

And told him more often that I thought he was witty.

I'd have treasured dearly being needed by him

...wanted even.
