What If . . .

Life’s bucket fills with special moments

Sometimes, we want to repeat it again

But life doesn’t always repeat and begin


What if . . .


Life’s journey brings one to old friends

Haven’t seen some for so very long

Sort of like writing a joy-filled song


What if . . .


Discord, unrest, strife and endless wars

Lost forever, never to surface and return

Solving problems becomes our concern


What if . . .


Becoming an outstanding and skilled alpine skier

Takes one to a majestic, snow-covered summit

Witnessing a Big Montana Sky, as thee plummets


What if . . .


Medical science discovers more cures

Eliminating major diseases and cancer

Let’s continue looking for these answers


What if . . .


Traveling bravely into the realms of space

Dreaming of one of life’s extraordinary goals

Makes one more excited than a newborn foal


What if . . .


One longs to visit family far away

At any particular day and time

Filling an empty heart of mine


What if . . .


Seeing former pupils from past teaching days

Sometimes wonder how their lives turned out

Bringing much happiness, without ever a doubt


What if . . .


All political strife would just disappear and leave

Citizens’ patience wears especially thin at times

Let’s put our “real” needs at the front of the line


What if . . .


Traveling back in time with an unspoiled reality

Experiencing history as it expresses to our minds

Beholding and learning from each moment in time


Life only allows so many years in one’s life

Rendering it necessary to experience more

Before our final breath closes these doors

  1. I loved this! I was most called to being able to visit people whenever you wanted, how amazing that would be! The traveling back in time has me wondering how history would be perceived differently with modern eyes.

    • Thank you Julie for sharing some thoughts. Some of my poetry even surprises me where it comes from. All of the points in the poem are self-reflective for me personally (such as visiting my Montana family more often).

  2. I love your list of “What Ifs” – but especially “What if Discord, unrest, strife and endless wars Lost forever, never to surface and return.” I pray for world peace and unity every day. Wouldn’t it be wonderful?
