What if

What if you don’t remember us?
What if we’re not the same?
After decades of seeing your smile,
will it fade when we speak your name?

What if you forget us completely?
What if you lose your will?
Will you recall the man you married;
your lover and best-friend, Bill?

What if you grow weak and weary?
What if you need us and were not there?
Will you stop and take a moment to ponder,
your life, decisions and affair?

What if he doesn’t love you?
What if his “love” was just a disguise?
To mask a lonely man’s vendetta,
to promote adultery, cheating and lies.

What if tomorrow never changes?
What if you never decide to come back?
Will your heart bear scars of agony,
or has it already faded black?

What if you call out our names,
and no one answers your pleas?
Will you recall the family who loves you?
Will you come back to them and me?
