IF'S,   WHAT'S   AND   MAYBE'S




The water is a mill-pond as I stand by the shore
Old Mr Moon leans over and shades me
My toes sink in further to the gritty sand below
While I think of all the if's, what's and maybe's

I ponder if only life had been better to me
And delivered you sooner rather than later
Then the wasted time as I searched on my knees
Sifting through all the pebbles while I waited

What if we hadn't met at all, I ask
What on earth would have become of my love
Who would have encased their eager hand in mine
And clasped it as secure as a glove

Maybe I would never have reached the place I'm at
Maybe I would have wandered like a lost soul in twilight
Then all this happiness that came my way would have been
Forgotten, misguided and a painful insight
