    If

    If I could jump up to the clouds, I’d never come back down.
    If I could turn excuses into bricks, I’d build a town.

    If I could crush those moments in a blender set on high,
    I’d drop in each mistake I’ve made and watch them liquefy.

    If I could stretch my words a mile so they’d mean that much more,
    It wouldn’t be enough to say how much I’m sorry for.

    If I could wear forgiveness like a cast to mend my shame,
    I’d hold the pen and hope you’d be the first to sign your name.

    Very nice lines:

    "If I could wear forgiveness like a cast to mend my shame,
    I’d hold the pen and hope you’d be the first to sign your name."

      I liked this one also. Wonder if you know Kippling's poem of the same name? www.davidpbrown.co.uk/poetry/rudyard-kipling.html

        So I found and read Kipling's IF -- a very good read packed with sound advice. Thanks for recommending it.

            Thank you all for the kind words! They make my heart happy. I haven't yet read Kipling's IF, John, but I'll have a look for it.

              poign·ant... adjective: poignant
              evoking a keen sense of sadness or regret.
              "a poignant reminder of the passing of time"

              Well done.
