The Vaults of Lost Time

Can the flower go back into a seed?
The plant into the root?
Dead leaves, go back to its original branch?
No more than time can resume its past course.
But lost time is never really lost!
It remains precisely as it should be, had been.
The error, is in that man can go back and have lived through a past happening.
For I have descended into the vaults of lost time—
Potent are man’s visions to pierce the restraints of time and space, summing the laws of record and arrangement, the timetable of life to rift and bend, as you beckon!
To such a person, time will tolerate: make room and space for this one person.
To see what was, and to return to what is.
