What If?

What If?

I often wonder,
What if, we had done things differently?
What if, life had taken a different turn?
What if you had never left me, to wander,
in the wasteland of memories to burn?
What if, we had clung to each other,
held on for dear life, tight?
What if, we had cherished our love,
cared not much, for wrong or right?
What if,
We had realised, what we had was rare?
and not to be tossed aside carelessly.
We were always meant to be together,
not to stay apart and miss each other ceaselessly.
What if, you hadn’t left me all alone?
What if, you had understood my pain?
Would you have cared, had you known,
that your going away, would make me insane?
What if, we had treasured what we had?
What if, we had held on to each other?
What if, we had embraced forever?
What if, we had loved forever?

  1. The what if's but if we held onto these we would not live and breathe in life. We would always be in that What If's stage

  2. Excellent I think at a point in our life we all have these questions in our heard. You voiced them for all of us Thank You

  5. Amazing post!!!Loved it!!! We as humans will never let go of the "What If's"… sometimes we have to let go of all the What If's and live in the Now to be happy!! Now learning to control our mind..thats' another question..I just posted a poem on my blog a few mins ago on the Human Mind!

  6. Humans always question their decisions in life and wonder if life would be better, exciting, etc if another path was taken. Personally, I wish I'd made better choices in life but then my path would had been different and Erin wouldn't have entered my life. One adjustment in the past alters the future and we must be content with what we have. Nice post and best wishes!!!

  9. Sulekkha, your writing comes from a place deep within your lovely soul.. and this kind of love you speak of can never quite be quenched.
    But you can, as you wrote in and earlier post, live in the moment and embrace life where you are right now.

  10. Oh Lucks, what a beautiful post…I always say that we should cherish all the love we have, never know when we'll lose the opportunity to show it and love that person back. Fantastic!!

  11. @Debra, I cherish your compliments and thank you for the same. We all try and live in the moment but only some succeed.

    @Swati, Thank you and welcome back, missed your comments on my blog.

  12. What if is a lot of wondering…. and I am always wondering…. Curious with my surroundings…so what if you didn't write this, you think I will ever know…? Hmmmmm…. hahaha Cheers Sulekkha..:)

  13. What if I had never read this poem, would I have left this comment, would I have …

    It's a nice poem. Having been in that situation your words portray the feeling of regret, and hopeless day dreaming really nicely. Great job.
