I'd live them again

“But I’d trade all of my tomorrows, for one single yesterday…” – Janis Joplin, Me and Bobby McGee

Take back my car.
My new suit.  My job.
Two tattoos
and the scar on my leg.
The dozens of novels
I don’t mind reading again.

Two sunglasses
and bracelets of leather.
Take back my hard drive.
My new songs.  My G1.
The thousands of minutes
I don’t mind talking again.

Two of my blogs
and the unfinished novella.
The hundreds of pages
I don’t mind writing again.
Take back my rank.
My new muscles.  My stuffed leopard.

Take back me.
My future.  My age.
Two coastal cities
and a dozen albums of photos.
The thousands of miles
I don’t mind flying again.

If Two can Take back The hundreds of days,
I’d live them again with You.
