Poem: I Want More Time

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

I want more time is a poem about realizing your life is nearing an end. You want more time with the one you love. To hold him in your arms one more time. You want to erase any bad moments. You want to exclaim your love to the whole world leaving behind only good memories for one to cherish.

I Want More Time

I'm at the end of my rope,
my strategy is failing,
I need to turn the hands on the clock backwards,
I want more time.

I wish upon a star
trying to redo the past
before I must depart

Another chance to hear her laughter,
to see her smile,
holding her in my arms
one last moment.

Erasing any hurtful pictures
dancing through her mind
from words spoken in the heat of the moment.

Wiping away any sorrowful tears
falling from her beautiful eyes.

Exclaiming out loud,
I am no longer afraid to tell
the whole world I love her.

Leaving behind only happy thoughts for her to cherish within her heart.

"One More Night" by Phil Collins
