If is such a little word
Its used so very much
So many things it’s used for
You have heard it many times as such.

If you knew then what you know now
Would you really change things
Even if you could
You may not want to know what the changes brings.

If you ask Jesus to save you
Do you really believe He would?
And would you understand
If it changed you for the good?

What would you do
If you had a million bucks
Would you spend it right away
Or just set back and say “aw shucks”.

Could you really change things
If you had a chance
Or would you leave them as they are
If they played one more dance.

Would you decide to live or die
If you had the choice to make
Or would you just leave things as they are
And leave it to chance to take.

If all the ifs in all the world
Were changed to what they were before
Would it affect your life
What would you do if it opened a new door.

About Jan P

I was born and raised and still live in the great state of Oklahoma in the U.S.A. I live in Oklahoma City and have lived her for over 40 years. Came from a small town in eastern Oklahoma. I was raised on a farm as my daddy was a sharecropper. I worked for the Department of Defense for over 30 years. I am now retired and trying to catch up on all the things I didn't get to do when I worked. I have written poetry for many years, but only recently started writing more since I have found a place where others can enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
