If I had turned my face away,
Not from spite or discomfort,
Or nothing so resembling choice.
If merely the sun had blinded my eyes
For a moment, no longer,
We never would have been.

If I had felt strangely and
spoken with indifference, and
You there had taken rightious offence,
And had refused me more,
We never would have been.

Had I had a cough our dream
might have been Stillborn.
Had you a headache, not tonight
nor ever had we known of us.
We never would have been.

Two children we, that for trifles
might never have found our life.

Paul Godfrey

Yes, a blink of an eye, a turned over thought, our paths are there, but what if??? Thanks for sharing this. I enjoyed reading it being so well written.
