Am I the first woman in the world
she could turn back the hands of time
erase the fine lines and grey hairs
of life experiences?
Can I discover my own little blue box
“that’s bigger on the inside”
allowing me to travel back to my past
right those I’ve wronged?
Am I the first woman
who has ever dreamed
of changing just that one thing
or take the chances I never took
to have the life I was destined to live?
As I lay next to you
listening to you softly snoring
I caress your scruffy cheek
and know in my heart
I have the answers to those questions
The choices I made may not have been perfect
but they created the woman I am today.
The life I live now is the one
God had planned for me all along,
for without the mistakes,
risking my heart,
taking that one right chance
I wouldn’t have the almost perfect life
I have now with you.
