Sidelines (Poem)

If I could start over completely
I would do this differently
If I had a second chance to be
The man you wanted of me

If I could start over one time
I’d give anything for another try
I wish I could rewind my mind
But instead I’m –

Sitting on the sidelines
Wallowing all my life
Allowing moments to pass on by

If I could wipe my slate clean
I promise to do things perfectly
If I had a second chance to be
Everything you need

I’d give anything for a second try
I promise somehow to get it right
I’d give anything to restart this time
I wish I wasn’t –

Sitting on the sidelines
Watching you my whole life
Wishing I could be by your side
