What If


What if I'd done this,
Or said that?

Would that have made,
A difference?

I'll always be haunted,
By the "what if's".

I think it would have made a difference, yes definitely...BUT would  it have made enough of a difference? We will always wonder about the road not taken but we had good reasons why we didn't "do that" or "say that" at the time..there may be comfort in remembering what those reasons were.


I know these same ghosts...

Short and as sharp as the thoughts that haunt us, as one who mulls on important moments in my life this rings true - well done - Rob

I think we all have asked the
'what if' questions at times in our lives.
You got your message across in a very
short but effective way. Linda

These thoughts as you said will always haunt you....I have found that I walk away from everything with "what if's". We always think of ways we could have made things better when the end comes to face us.

Short but straight to the point! Good way to go!
