Downshift

Tonight I find myself caught within your grip My mind orbiting thoughts of what if What if I had stayed instead of skipped Would you had caught my drift What if love had poured instead of just a drip Would the balance ever shift What if when I fell you at least tripped Would hearts had soared an honest uplift What if I came instead of letting sanity slip Would peace rein or still this rift What if I had remained silent instead of using lip Would the ending had been so swift What if I had been strong instead of letting my nerve trip Would your love had been my gift What ifs are many and often double dipped My heart remains yours while my love goes adrift

Rose, so many what-ifs in life can sometimes drive one crazy. John
