I found an old tattered letter,
Tucked away in a box, as I
Sorted thru the depths of my closet.
Oh! such memories it did spark
Of the first true love
I had known.
I chuckled as I read it,
Because I knew
How each of us had grown.
It had been a time of discovery,
Silliness, daydreaming and childlike
Once, we had swore that our love
Would last forever ever and ever.
Nothing could possibly tear us apart.
Our parents knew the difference,
But showed support from the very start.
I looked back on those days of yesteryear
Of the dreams we had, that love so pure.
Daydreaming, I allowed myself
Some “what if” moments, had
Life’s circumstances’ allowed for us
To have continued on together.
I wondered where I would be?
And who, what and how
Would I be different on this day?
A little voice inside me, whispered.
It was sure, that my life was better now,
Than any other way.
Startled, from my day dream trance
By the trill of the phone,
I answered, it was my eldest.
At that moment, in my heart and soul
I knew the answer my what if’s
Had been seeking.
The future and our path
God and the universe, help us choose
Is the one that turns out best.
