    I would shut up. Listen to you.

    Then I could have understood. I would do the exact opposite of everything I did. With the exception of working at hugs and going out with you. I would show you all I feel. I would have slowed down and taken the time to enjoy you and all of who you are. I would have told you my...

    Just to visit the past cz of the good memories

    friends and people I met so far, not to change it I believe that what is done is done and we shouldn't waste our time wishing for different instead we should embrace our past no matter how tragic, awesome or bland it may be

    I wish I had done more

    or tried harder I guess. I sometimes feel like I missed out on so much. I could have made great, lasting friendships, I could have developed my talents, I could have worked harder at school instead of doing enough to get by. I could have been great. Unfortunately, I can't go...

    To see what the ancient world was really about.

    To learn the forgot knowledge of civilization lost. To utilize more than 4% of my brain. To watch monuments be built that modern machines cannot duplicate. To be at a perfect balance of 7.23. To do more than exist in a 3rd dimension, rather, to have a unique understanding and...

    I wish I could go back in time,

    When I still had you, And you still loved me, And I was your world, And you were mine. But you found someone new, And I can't seem to get s clue, That you'll never come back, Because to me, You're still mine, I still love you, You are my world, And I am yours.

    I would go back in time nearly 21 years ago

    when I first met you And I would tell you what a piece of **** you are And how much you were going to hurt me If only I could have had a crystal ball to forsee the future, I would have just walked away, and kept walking. I'd have been way better off in the long run :-(

    I would go back in time to 6 years ago to

    when I decided to let my husband (not my husband at the time) move back in my house. Also change a year later when the pastor from our church showed up and convinced us we were living in sin and needed to get married! Do over!!

    I wish I could go back in time, back when our love was new. So I could carefully remind myself, of all the things I’ll do for you. All the sacrifices I will make, proving my love is true. All the things that I’ll give up, not seeing you coerced me to. Kept close to you under...
