This Time


If, as in a vision in the night,
God took me back through time,
before you and I were joined as one,
and I held perfect recall of all the days
that have been granted us until now.

And I saw all our time together in review,
our every happiness and exultation,
our every heartbreak, pain and grief;
and if I was granted then, by God, the choice
to walk and love through life again with you – or not,

I would, with certainty of heart,
love you again and walk together
through joy and sorrow and love and loss,
giving all my heart to God and you,
only this time, love you better than before.
