If I could turn back time I would hit Backspace all day, Id put on Caps Lock and SHOUT what I say.
I'd use the whole Alphabet To tell you hello, Press seven Numbers Til you picked up the phone.
I'd Tab through the comments I didn't want to hear, And use the Arrow Keys To drag your body near.
I would Delete the harsh words I didn't mean to speak, And Insert the "I love yous" I before couldn't leak.
I would use Ctrl to Keep reigns over my heart, And I would Escape lies That tore us apart.
I'd Print out your photo And kiss it goodnight, Use the Calculator To check that we were right.
I'd Paint you a picture of us, you and me, Then I'd hit Enter Just so you would see.
Those are the things I would do in my strife, If only Backspace worked in real life.
This is the first poem (that I have a copy of) i wrote that I actually thought was good. I was in seventh grade, twelve years old, and I wrote it for a newspaper competition. I knew it was really great but I didn't think I would beat all other applicants in the state in my age group. So you can imagine my surprise I'm sure when I DID win! That is the first time I was proud of my writing. So this one has a lot of special sentimental value. Thanks for reading.
