If I could have my time over again,
so many things that I could say or do
Before I saw my life's span start to wane,
Address the what, wherefore, the why and who.
To start again knowing what I know now
And do things right the way I should have done;
Just what exactly would I change and how?
Alter the winding course my life has run?
But changing all my past affects the now;
My husband gone, my children somewhere else.
A whole new set of promises I'd vow
A different life, another story tells.

I'm glad I took this road, tho' it be long
For that which does not kill you makes you strong.
