We can never turn back the pages of time, though we may wish to relive a happy moment, or say goodbye just one last time, we never can, because the sands of time continue to fall, and we can't turn the hourglass over.

There always seem to be that moment from the past
You wish to relive, do-over
You can’t stop thinking about how things could be different
Until that moment consumes you.
 
That’s what happens when time stops
You get stuck in a moment
And so caught up in the past
Wishing, hoping, praying that you could turn back time
 
That’s what happens when you forget to look ahead to the future.
You walk along, in a daze
Telling yourself that you can change what happened
Afraid to admit you’re just wasting your time
 
You bend, until that moment breaks you
On your knees, you can’t take the painful reality
But you know it’s time
To stop living in the past
 
That’s what happens when you realize time doesn’t wait for you.
Time keeps moving forward,
And life goes on.
The past isn’t coming back.
But the future’s bright
For those choose who face it.
