I Have Changed The Numbers On My Watch

I have changed the numbers on my watch,
And now perhaps something else will change.
Now perhaps
At precisely 2a.m.
You will not get up
And gathering your things together
Go forever.
Perhaps now you will find it is
Far too early to go,
Or far too late,
And stay forever

a nice poem of if we could only turn back time? maybe one day! ............well penned BP.
I like the concept here, but there seems to be a word missing between lines six and seven. The flow is wrong there. Perhaps the person who submitted it made a typo.
A lovely expression of hopefulness.
barren in stanzas but pregnant in meaning....thanks for sharing this.
Lovely piece of poetry written with insight. Thanks for sharing.
