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-i-want-more-time

At the end of my rope,
my strategy has failed
I need the clock to turn back,
I want more time.

To hear your laughter,
see your smile,
to hold you close
one last time.

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

Erase pictures
of the hurtful words
we spoke.

Wipe away moments
tears fell from your eyes.

Exclaim out loud
I love you,
for the whole world to know.

Leaving only happy thoughts
to live
within your heart.

"One More Night" by Phil Collins
