“Just one more, and that is all I need”
This heartbreaking plea is common indeed-
One more chance to set things right
One more attempt to prove your might
Just one opportunity to apologize
For hurtful deeds you were too late to realize
One last try before you give up for certain
One last act before life draws the curtain
One more lingering moment before bidding adieu
One more embrace to remember and carry you through..
Ah the tantalizing prospects evoked by this phrase!
Life can transform in a moment, it says
The difference between sorrow and happiness
Might lie in that one extra moment missed!
