I'd want to say
A thousand words,
- and more-,
To rewind time
And to give
Your past
A new beautiful future.

               But no word of mine
               Sounds clear enough;
               And no plea will work,
               Nor has the power,
               Or is that strong;

                              'Cause at crossroads
                              There's always a chance
                              That one finds,
                              A different path,

                                             One last word
                                             - maybe a few -
                                             to bless,
                                             to thank,
                                             to let you go
                                             on your incredible journey

                                             In peace.
