What if

Sometimes I wonder
Who I might be
Had I walked down a different path
Would it still have led me to you

A darker choice
Satisfying just me
The way people call free
Would it have obscured your light

I try to analyze 
The many forks in the road
We both had to travel
Was this not meant to be

In the end
God guided our steps
Formed you for me
Was this not his plan all along

So I guess the answer
Who I am has changed
By the path he ordained 
What if I hadn't followed

    Great questions. Sometimes it's hard to know the right path to follow... all our earthly desires tend to get in the way and muddy the decisions. Always so introspective with your writings... loved it! I see that What If is a popular title (I wrote a lyric awhile back called that... though I don't think it's that great).

    When our thoughts lead us to reassess, we often find comfort in the knowledge that we fit quiet well into the life we have journeyed, safe in the knowledge that he has ordained it from the very start, beautiful thoughts penned Richard, do continue to inspire us with your sweet reflections, have a blessed day Always, Rose xxx
