Imperfect

If you could breathe
every breath you've ever breathed
just one more time
would you?

Or would you sit
recollect the good, the bad,
the moments your heart broke
from tears you couldn't even cry
and the moments of joy when even laughter wasn't enough?
when laughter wasn't enough --

Smiling gently,
reminding yourself that life goes on
on and on and on

No time to relive,
but today is a new day
and tomorrow is one more --
and that's when I realize

No.
I wouldn't do it.
Those breaths can remain where they are
in the past
stay the same
never change
a part of my story
indelible ink remain;

I've never been perfect.
I never will be.
But you see, this imperfect
is perfectly me.
