If you could turn back time, what would you do differently?
As for me, I would go back to the day we first met. The day our eyes first locked and when I fell in love at your sheepish smile. I would turn back to the time when we first kissed. When you gave me a peck outside my old apartment, in the rain.
I would turn back time to our weekly getaways where we explored obsolete towns we never knew existed. Right then, every day, I would hold you so close to me, and when you held my hands, I wouldn’t let them go.
I wouldn’t get mad at you for the little things you do and I’d tell you – you’re the only person who makes me laugh especially when I am at my lowest point.
I will try to understand you better, to listen to your needs and to care for you.
Every night when the sky is clear and dark and we decide to stargaze, I will lean my head against your shoulder and whisper into your ears how lucky I feel, how strange but how perfect you are.
I will memorize your features. I will watch you play your favourite sport without complaints. I will listen to every song you rehearsed and tell you how much I love your voice and the way you strum the guitar strings. How much I really love you.
If I could turn back time, I wish we’d never fight. Or stay apart.
Because nowadays, for most time, I wish you were next to me.
