Time Machine

If you could change the things you've done
Would you jump and take the chance?
Or would you leave your life alone
And continue with the dance?

If you could make some things better
But know that other things would change
Would you keep your life the way it is
Or would you choose to rearrange?

I wish I had a time machine
For I know what I would do
I would travel back into the past
To spend more time with you

I wouldn't change what happened
I would just relive the past
Because I love when we're together
And it's moments you can't grasp

Would you change the job you're doing
Would you make yourself real rich
Remember though if things you change
Time's  fabric drops a stitch

The things you do when you go back
Will change the things now here
So if you do things different
Your life might disappear

You can go make sick folks healthy
But that will change the scope of time
If I changed the things that happened
you may not end up being mine

I wish I had a time machine
For I know what I would do
I would travel back into the past
To spend more time with you

I wouldn't change what happened
I would just relive the past
Because I love when we're together
And it's moments you can't grasp

There are reasons that things happen
And there are  reasons some do not
Would you change the life you're living
For one that you are not?

I know that I'd revisit
The past for just  a while
And I'd leave things just the same
I'd go back to see your smile

I wish I had a time machine
For I know what I would do
I would travel back into the past
To spend more time with you

I wouldn't change what happened
I would just relive the past
Because I love when we're together
And it's moments you can't grasp

I'd leave time just the way it was
I'd do everything the same
That way, nothing would be different
And I wouldn't be to blame

I wish I had a time machine
For I know what I would do
I would travel back into the past
To spend more time with you

I wouldn't change what happened
I would just relive the past
Because I love when we're together
And it's moments you can't grasp

Lavender

Streams of color
In constant motion
showing shades of beauty hidden
Powered by the wind
As it caresses the river of scent
Gently, softly, lovingly
And moves through the rows
Never stopping, always moving
Following the wind
Lavender tributaries
in a Sensual  scented sea of color
Never ending.
