This is a poem I wrote while reflecting on my past relationship. Would I have change the past knowing now how tragically it would end?

I often remember what we once were and to myself I think,

If I could go back in time, would I change everything?

Would I have stayed home that night? Or would I have still come to see you because it felt so right?

Would I have let you walk me home? Or would I have left you in the park and gone alone?

Would I have pulled away from your hug so that we would never have kissed?  Or would I have held you longer in our tight embrace?

Would I have let myself stay long enough to fall in love with you? Or would I have run away like I always do?

Would I trade the best seven months of my life for a heart that isn’t shattered? Or would I leave the past unaltered because none of this heartbreak matters?

Sometimes the answer is yes, but other times, I say no.

If I would change it all, I may never really know.

There is, however, one thing that I know for sure,

That is, if I could control life, I would still be yours.
