Turning


What if this is an alternate universe and I am unborn?
What if this is a flashback and I am old and lying on my death bed?
What if my children were happy?
What if I wasn't really sorry? 
What if all good things didn't have to come to an end?
If I could turn back time, I would. If I could make you happy I would.
If I could die for you and change it, saving you, like Christ did, I would.
No doubt!
But I can not.
I can not feel your pain for you, though I would, if I were able.
I can not, and perhaps that is for the best.
My soul is full of its own regret
And beauty
And love
What if I were strong enough in all the broken places?
What if, just what if?
