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 to spend with the one you love.

To hold him in your arms one more time.

You want to erase bad moments & exclaim your love for the whole world to see.

To leave behind only good memories to cherish.

"One More Day - Diamond Rio"


I Want More Time

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

I stand alone wishing on a star
to redo the past
before I must depart.

One more chance to hear her laughter,
to see her smile,
to hold her in my arms.

To erase those hurtful pictures
swirling through her mind
from words spoken in the heat of the moment.

To wipe away sorrowful tears
falling from her beautiful eyes.

Exclaiming out loud,
I'm no longer afraid,
I want the whole world to know:

"She's the love of my life"

I want to leave behind only happy memories for her to cherish.

I want more time.


Time isn't the main thing.

It's the only


— Miles Davis
