What If - a Poem full of uncertainty

It is useless to talk to her

Now she no longer feels this heart

Her soul is without the love

And he praises her not


Tears flow down her cheek

Tearing her up as she thinks:

Of what could have been


What if things had been different?


She scream with the howling wind

As this nightmare has her taken

With her dreams turned to dust


She wanted it to last so desperately

Blinded by the lover’s eye

That which made her lose sight of all else


What if things had been different?


Time passes

As she sleeps; To talk no more

For she got dealt a hand: Not in her favour

Not what she had planned

Not what she had hoped for

As it ended so abruptly


Only if things had been different

Only if this spring swapped snow for leaves

A beautiful poem that brings to life so vividly the emotions and wishes we have when a love, we believe to be for ever, dies. We look everywhere, desperately for answers, but there are none.

I really loved this beautiful work. Voted up!!
