If I Could Change One Thing


There are so many things in my life that I wish I could change;

There are so many crying and dying in vein.

The one thing that I would change would be to have a chance to contact those who have passed.

Sometimes I need to look up in the sky for the hopes of some prolific advice,

But when my head is up in the clouds like that I always get burned.

I want to reach up to a phone just to call my uncle Edmund,

I want to hear him tell one more joke at my expense.

I want to get to know my uncle Joshua,

All I want is one more conversation,

One more tip of their wisdom.

I could only dream of the knowledge I could gain,

How much a few words could ease so much pain

I understand that this is a far fetched idea

However I strongly believe that it must come true

This is the one thing I would change.

How much comfort it would bring

To ask the last few questions, to say I love you and goodbye one more time

This has been and always will be my dream.
