What If

img_1087a

WHAT IF?

What if we were born, my friend,

in another place and time?

Would I still be yours?

Would you still be mine?

What if people learned to love

each other as they should?

Would we then all get along,

Not be misunderstood?

If the rain stopped falling down,

would the rivers all run dry?

What if every bird on earth

decided not to fly?

What if the sun refused to shine?

Would day then turn to night?

Would darkness be our way of life,

the absence of all light?

What if the moon and stars

No longer filled the sky?

The emptiness above

Would make me want to cry.

What if the next breath that you take

were to be your very last?

Would you leave this world contented,

or regretful of the past?

What would you attempt to do

if you knew you would succeed?

Hear the voice within your heart

and always pay it heed.

    This is achingly truthful and the photo so lovely. The verse about succeeding brought me up short. This I will have to consider.
