Time - Poem by Marien Jacobs
If only I could turn back time,
If only I could turn the wheel back on a dime,
If only I could get the sands of time a day back to flow,
I’ll pierce the sandglass with my own two hands, just to know:
I would have act a little different,
Not to cause the pain I did,
Not to know a tear was leaking,
From your eyes I just long to see a bit.
For the deepest self-caused pain within, causing one to weep
Is to know and regret that you hurt the one you love so deep,
The one who deserves only your smile,
One you so long to hold, even if it’s just a while.
The one you dream of your life with to spend,
One you admire, adore and can call your best friend,
Knowing you failed in being the help meet you so long to be,
And far from perfect, but for God to work in me I plea!
I can not change what is done or what is said,
But I pray to walk more cautiously on the road ahead.
Knowing your fragile heart is in my possession
So please hear and accept my confession.
And all I long in my heart for you to know,
Is that I mean it sincerely,
When I say I love you more dearly,
Than words can describe down here below.
And I can’t even imagine ever losing you…
I’d rather die and pierce my own heart through.
I want you to know, my heart is within your hands,
Yes it’s fragile too, yet longing to obey what love commands.
