If Only I Could Go Back

If only I could go back in time
To the roots of our beginning
When our stars of fate collided
Forging a newly found existence
Of a universe we made together

Butterflies awoke in that moment
Restlessly flying in their cage
Unfathomed energy rose up
Weaving its way to a virgin heart
Wrapping it with golden threads of love

Those days are now lost in the ocean
A single drop becoming one with time
I can now only see the color of the rose
But cannot feel the smell of its fragrance
If only I can go back in time…
