Terra, a poet from Virginia, asks...
This is a line to a poem I wrote. Could you please supply me with the proper grammar for the words in parenthesis. "I know that time would stand still if I (was) more (then) just a memory."
Anne answers...
Terra, The correct grammar requires the sentence to read as follows: "I know that time would stand still if I were more than just a memory."
