If I could turn back the clock
and revisit that day.
Things would be different.
I would know the right words to say.
I would have listened more
and talked less.
I would have given you hope
and not make everything a jest.
I would have noticed your love
in the small things you did.
I would have seen your sadness
and the feelings you hid.
I would have hugged you more
and treasured every moment spent.
I should have realised our time together was only lent.
If I could turn back the clock,
It would be a glorious thing.
But you are long gone
and all I have left is your ring.
