If I could turn back the clock and revisit the years
The worry and fears would feature less in our lives
I would hold your hand tightly and cherish the tears
I would be kinder, argue less, smile more and realise
That the memories and moments and having you near
Are worth more than ever as ever-swiftly time flies.

This is my contribution to the birthday open link night at d’Verse. I am a November birthday. This is about my children, especially my firstborn twin, who is a long way from home and is bravely making her way in the world with no family at her side. When I look back at all the moments I wish there had been more time not less.
