What If ?

What would happen if I never saw you again.What if I woke and you were gone how could I stand the pain.What if the sun forgot to rise and all was dark and no birds flew up in the darken skies.

What would I do if all the trees were gone taking with them the grass we loved to picnic on.What would I do if the rivers full of fish and ducks where whisked away and hidden from my sight what would I do stumbling around in this new enforced night. Without you by my side how would I cope, as good as blind in an empty world lost and lonely without hope!

What would happen if all music stopped all instruments removed and silenced. No voices soaring, and harmonies dropped. What would happen if all the animals were gone no cattle lowing , no horses neighing  and no bird song.

What would happen if as I awoke all love and tenderness fled. All feelings good and bad, banished tossed aside or dead. War, tyranny, greed and avarice  gone all gone but I still stand alone. Without you  all else counts for nought as in misery I crawl around in the darkness my mind has wrought !

What am I, human? not built to stand alone in darkness, shivering soaked to the very bone. What if,  what if I woke and it is all gone everything and everyone I have known gone , disappeared simply flown.

It is my fear that I will have to stand alone and answer for what humanity has done.

    You will only have to answer to what YOU have done–and you will have many credits in your record book, willowdot! Yes, we are all ONE but we each have our own “molecule” to account for, not the entire Creation!

    Very beautiful poem and equally a very strong message!

    “If” is the longest word in human language….goes off in so many directions, branches out to the impossible it seems….yet to answer one ” if” takes the first step to conquer fear….so I will find a way to answer one if?

    What a stunning read, Willow. If only we didn’t have to answer these questions, or even have them asked! XX

    If those happen, I really don’t know what to do. 😦

    Why does this have to be this sad I am so affected right now. 😦

    “IF” is but a small part of LIFE. So stop worrying, lovely, & enjoy your life. 😉 xx

    Great! you are a terrific writer. I love your work. I appreciate the “I” in this poem. It reveals a very deep heart awakening to world suffering almost too great to face. The shadow side of this deepening can be a great sense of being alone. It is like birth into a realm that feels still unclear, unseen-like the womb.
