If Only
By Don Iannone

If only we had it to do
...all over again.
If only we had
...one more chance.

If only we could go back
...and erase what was written
...and write another script--
one more honest and true.
One more real
...and more fully present.
One carrying us past
...our illusions and blindspots.

If only we could let go
...of our need to go back
...and change anything in our lives.

If only we could accept ourselves--
just the way we are.

If only we could listen
...to this conversation
...and heed its ending message.
