I wish I could go back in time
to relive my history;
I’d reconnect with friends and family
That meant so much to me.
There is so much I didn’t know
When I was just a kid;
But knowing what I do today,
T’would be a different life I’d live.
Our cousins moved around the state,
Didn’t get to see them much;
Because of all the distance,
It was hard to keep in touch.
Most of my family have left this world
While unable to say “goodbye”
When I think about all that I’ve lost,
It makes me want to cry.
My nieces and nephews are married
And have children of their own;
They, too, live all around the states,
And, some I’ve never known.
One day I opened Facebook
and much to my surprise,
I saw a lot of relatives!
I couldn’t believe my eyes
I also saw their pictures;
that brought me lots of cheer;
It is so nice to chat with them,
and say “hello” from here.
I wish time hadn’t gone so fast,
I wish I could rewind;
To bring together those in my life,
While we still have time.
