Going Back

I met your eyes and fell in love.
So many ways to say “I love you”,
So many ways to die in my arms.
One day we danced all night
and we said we’ll be alright.
But you fell before I could catch you.
I don’t know how I survived without you.
But now I have found a way to go back in time,
I tried but I collapsed and cried.
I was on my knees and you said “Are you alright?”
I said with tears running down my cheeks:
“No, because without you I lost it all”.
