Glad that we met

If you want to unmeet me I don't think you can,

Clocks can't be turned back as easy as that,

You can leave me, ignore me or turn me away,

But you cannot unmeet me that time's here to stay.


I'd need to be somewhere I wasn't that day,

You'd need to be occupied far, far, away,

The clocks of the world would all stop and reverse,

For you to unmeet me the problem gets worse.


We'd have to move mountains, rivers and streams,

We'd need to invent an unmeeting machine,

It would need to unravel 'what happened next?'

So I think it best to say 'glad that we met.'
