If I could turn back the hand of the clock,
I would travel back in time and undo the crazy things
I did just to win your heart.

If I could turn back the hand of the clock,
I would travel back in time and erase
all the memories we shared together.

If I could turn back the hand of the clock,
I would take a voyage back in time
and cancel all the failed promises we made to each other.

If I could turn back the hand of the clock,
I would go back in time and undo
all the things we did together.

If I could turn back the hand of the clock,
I would go back in time and gather
every broken piece of me left in you.

If I could turn back the hand of the clock,
I would go back to that place we first met
and pretend as though you never existed.

I would snub you and make you feel insignificant
and unattractive even in your beauty.

I would make sure I didn't fall for you
even when I could feel the fire of love
burning inextinguishably in my heart for you.

I would ignore the strong feelings
burning in me until it fade away
and never give anyone a chance to toy with my emotions.

If I could turn back the hand of the clock,
I would go back in time and immune and fortify my heart
against all trauma that comes with heartbreak and betrayal.

But since I can not wish all my wishes to come true,
I will let these memories live with me as the only part you left in me.
I will live every moment we shared together.
I will smile all the smile you made me smile and and shed all the tears you made me shed.
I will laugh all the laugh you made me laugh and cry all the cry you made me cry.
I'll relive all the moments we spent together.
I'll blush at all the sweet names you called me and cringe at all the insults you hurled at me.

Though we were not meant to be together for a lifetime
but our memories were meant to stay for a lifetime.
I wish you a happy life in the arms of the man you're finding solace right now.
I hope he loves and adores you better than I did.
But please, treasure the little pieces of me left in you,
for we are nothing but debris of broken pieces in the hearts of our ex-lovers.
From Paul, your trash who was once your treasure.
