If I could go back

To when I thought you had cared,

Believed in your promises,

And that you’d always be there

If I could turn the clock

And resume the time,

Would I live it all over

If I knew that you’d lied?

If I could go back

To your smiles and flowers,

To your hand in mine,

And whispers empowering

Me to trust the process,

To believe in you,

Would I choose being happy

Over knowing the truth?

If I could go back

Would I relive us again

Just to eventually shatter,

Or save me the pain?

?
