What If

Written by: Elisabet Chiguil

What if the sun never shined,
or if the moon never showed?
What if poems did not rhyme?
What if time slowed?
What if birds never sang harmonies?
What if it never rained?
What if there were no melodies?
What if all colors drained?
What if no one spoke?
Or loved?
Or if no one ever joked,
or hugged?
What if? What if?
What if no one asked this question,
ever again?
