For Just An Instant

Could we go back….for just an instant
How would we choose just where to go
So many places…so insistent
How would we ever know

Where to start, we’d likely muse
Just where that instant
Should be used
And how that it should end

Too many instances
So many mistakes (in my case)
Cringes and winces
o’er so many heartbreaks

Could I go back…
E’en just for an instant
I’d fill that instant
With love and care

Though there’s “Oh so many…
Far, far, too many! ”
Instances…
For me to share

If I could go back…
make different choices
Listen more closely
To different voices

Perhaps I would not
Want to go back
Perhaps what I did
Was the best I could do

But had I the choice to go back
and I could…e’en just for an instant,
In a heartbeat, I would!
But pray tell would you?
