If I could do anything over again...

If I could do anything over again

It would be to spend more time with you

But that’s not how things work in this thing called life

I guess we did all we were meant to do

But…

I would have reached out to you more often

I would have suggested we meet for dinner or a drink

I would have stopped holding grudges and anger inside

I would have fought harder to keep our relationship in sync

I would have opened the door instead of leaving it closed

I would have told you I love you a little bit more


We all take for granted

Each hour and day

We assume we have more

And we always say…

"Let’s do it tomorrow, or some other day"

But there might not be a tomorrow

or some other day

So let's make the most of right now

Let's do that today


I don’t want to do it all over again

I don’t want to lose what we had

I don’t want to sit with regret in my heart

I no longer want to be sad


Instead, I will visit the place in my heart

Where all of our memories are stored

I will smile and laugh, and I am sure I will cry

And I will always wish there were more


I don't want to do anything over again

I don't think it would change a thing

I will make more effort to enjoy right now

Not wondering what tomorrow might bring


My gratitude cup is filled to the brim

Of the times I did have with you

And for that I will always be thankful

I hope you are feeling that too
