Come Back - Poem by Denys E. W. Jones

Come back you days so lately gone
I fancy you're still here.
Back days so very long since fled
It seems you never were.

Then might I re-taste sweet tastes,
Not do done things, correct mistakes,
Pay heed to some ignored advice,
And swim in the same river twice.

I know ahead lie other days.
They do not interest me.
The only ones I call upon
Are those already seen.

I yearn to live through them again,
As I did once before.
Each day one time is not enough,
It should be two, three, four.

So come back seconds, minutes, hours,
Return, past days, I cry.
It's surely not beyond your power.
The days make no reply.
